Title: Alice in the Delighted States Title Record # 2005283
Author: Edward Hope
Date: 1928-03-00
Type: NOVEL
Language: English
Note: Edward Hope wrote "The Lantern", a humorous column in the New York Herald Tribune. Several 1928 columns mention Alice in the Delighted States. One for Christmas week (1928-12-17 p16) is devoted to the contribution purportedly by Harford Powel, Jr. (1887-1956 satirist, editor, advertiser). It is a modest contribution to meet the two book publishers' need for a plan "to lessen Sales Resistance on the Two Best Books of 1928", namely Hope's Alice and Powel's The Virgin Queene.
Synopsis: "[A] satire on the United States, does not quite "come off". Alice in Wonderland is not an easy book to parody ..." -- capsule review The Irish Times 1928-11-02 p3 "A capital imitation of Lewis Carroll's masterpiece. The author turns Alice loose on the United States ..."; "Gentle satire ... not a breath of bitterness" -- review The Times of India 1928-11-30 p12
