Throughout her fantastic journeys, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice. She has become one of the great characters of imaginative literature, as immortal as Don Quixote, Huckleberry Finn, Captain Ahab, Sherlock Holmes, and Dorothy Gale of Kansas.Tan Lin is a writer, artist, and critic. He is the author of two books of poetry, "Lotion Bullwhip Giraffe" and "IDM.""
