“The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things: Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax, of cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.
Lewis Carroll from The Walrus and the Carpenter published 1871

It seemed too appropriate to even believe…what this Jabberwocky quote says, in just the brief couple of lines quoted here. Their relevance to my new novel came to me in the middle of the night like a random flash of brilliance in the indigo. (Your brain never sleeps when you write a book.) My novel addresses many of the subjects in this Lewis Carroll quote, although his language is called Jabberwocky. People who turn from kings to cabbages right before your eyes and things that seemed too impossible to believe at the time they were indeed happening – things which I had thought would only occur when and if pigs could fly. I see the humor in that, of course, and the book is humorous, but also deeply, seriously sobering in places.
Stay tuned!
