Alison Wonderland: a novel
After Alison Temple discovers that her husband is cheating on her, she does what any jilted woman would do: she spray-paints a nasty message for him on her wedding dress and takes a job with the detective firm that found him out.
Being a researcher at the all-female Fitzgerald's Bureau of Investigation in London is certainly a change of pace from her previous life, especially considering the characters Alison meets in the line of duty. There's her boss, the estimable Mrs. Fitzgerald; Taron, Alison's eccentric best friend, who claims her mother is a witch; Jeff, her love-struck, poetry-writing neighbor; and--last but not least!--her psychic postman. Together, their idiosyncrasies and their demands on Alison threaten to drive her mad...if she didn't need and love them all so much.
Clever, quirky, and infused with just a hint of magic, Alison Wonderland is a literary novel about a memorable heroine coping with the everyday complexities of modern life.
