I have been rereading Graham Greene's Under the Garden and noticing its parallels to Wonderland - the protagonist falls though a hole in the ground and discovers strange characters beneath the surface. What I had not noticed previously is the resemblance of the ruler of the underground kingdom to Humpty Dumpty, in his enthroned eminence, in his air of infallibility, and in the apparent deliriousness of his pronouncements which yet seem to have something hidden underneath. The rereading is prior to sending two copies of this little Penguin reissue off to foreign parts, the idea is to have a sort of virtual book club when the copies are received, I will post one illustration to commence the reading period and then another a couple of weeks later and if others want to participate, we can have a discussion in the comments section. It's available on Amazon, and first appeared in the story collection A Sense of Reality.
A plan has emerged regarding these altered photos, more on that later. The illlustration friday prompt is subterranean.
