Now where have I seen this kind of literary emperor’s new clothes recently?
I cannot wait to see this! One of my favourite books ever, and it can hardly be worse than the Juliet Binoche version, can it?
Speaking of film adaptations, I finally got around to watching Stardust in hospital (I got out yesterday). The only thing I didn’t like about the film was that I actually came really close to rupturing the stitches in my donor site by laughing too much.
Alice in Wonderland seems to be very much in vogue at the moment, as evidenced by the exhibition at Tate Liverpool. You can check out some of the images on display on the BBC website. I’m afraid that’s all I’ll be able to do while this exhibition lasts, since as my operation and two week hospital stay starts tomorrow, little short of holding a nurse hostage is going to get me there.
I might just have to get my private Alice collection out to make it up to myself. If you’re very good I might share them with you.
