Alice I Have Been tells a fictional account of the life of the real Alice in Wonderland, Alice Liddell.  Alice was one of the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church, Oxford University.  Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was a friend to the girls and spun the tale of Alice in Wonderland while on a boating party.  This book examines the life of the real Alice, her childhood, her relationship with Dodgson, her loves and her tragedies.  It is a look at the fascinating, complex life of a woman who was immortalized as a little girl in a story.
