Book Cover Idea


I'd love to read a revisionist "Alice in Wonderland" where the Madhatter was totally misunderstood and "sweet" Alice turns out to be a twisted vanity-monger.

Personally, I'd like to see "Confessions of a Red-Hatter" but I suppose it'd be a totally different cover. Alas...


My wife went on a cruise with the Red-Hat ladies. She and her friend were about 20+ years to young to join, but went along as "ladies in waiting" Based on some of the stories i have heard, A book titled "Confessions of a Red Hatter" would hit the best seller list almost instantly, whether for the humour or the scandals, i dont know, but i can assure you, you will never look at grandma the same way again.

Sarah N:

Sounds like a cross between Wicked and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister but would be way more dark and messed up. Perhaps Gregory Maguire is looking for new material. The cover certainly would look sinister in this form and so the reader would be shocked to learn the true story of the Mad Hatter. That colossal nose is just intriguing. It makes him look dastardly, but you sense that he's a tragic hero like Cyrano De Bergerac. Love it!

That isn't revisionist. The Disney-fied version notwithstanding, the Mad Hatter was truly a pitiful character, and Alice was an immature, self-absorbed twit.


I think the movie should have Dudly Moore as the Madd Hatter and Paris Hilton as Alice. (Yeah I know he's dead, but he is still a better actor than Paris Hilton)
