Synopsis

Though her neighbors in turn-of-the-century New York consider her a madwoman in the attic, Alice Pinkertons mind is razor-sharp, honed by a restless imagination, years of reading, and a profound contempt for her surroundings. Like her namesake in 'Through the Looking-Glass', Alice has a mirror through which to enter a different world, only for her the mirror is literature. Heart-breakingly funny and fiercely intelligent, 'Pinkertons Sister' is an extraordinary work of imagination about imagination, a celebration of the power of fiction and its ultimate redeeming quality.
