Alice in Brexitland; Lucien Young

 

Lucien Young under the nom de plume Leavis Carroll

Brenda from Bristol this book’s for you. Pour yourself a drink and sit down for an hour with this funny, very clever, brilliantly illustrated book that will give you your much-needed respite from the absurdity of British politics and its political elite.

Parodying a host of politicians, it features characters such as “‘Dave’ the Camerarabbit, who Alice follows down the Brexithole”, Nigel Farage as the “inanely grinning Cheshire Cat”, Jeremy Corbyn as the “Corbyn-pillar, smoking a hookah all day on his toadstool and being no help to anyone”, Theresa May as the “hard-Brexit-pushing Queen of Heartlessness”, the nonsensical “Tweedleboz and Tweedlegove” and Trump as Trumpty Dumpty, “sitting on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for”. Everybody is fair game in this hilarious reworking of Lewis Carroll’s craziest characters.
