A complete reproduction of the rare 1913 parody, brought back to life for the first time in nearly one hundred years! For those of us, like the Dormouse, who are "neither athletic nor prominent," stumbling into "the Yard" can be about as bewildering as falling into a rabbit hole. When narrated by the legendary Harvard Lampoon, the trip is all the more—well—trippy. Nearly a century after its first publication, Alice's Adventures in Cambridge is still a delight. And though you may need to look up allusions to purple socks, Keezer's Clothing and the Manter Hall School, the peculiarities of prestige and the allure of elitism remain timeless

Author is long-deceased. A new foreword for this edition was written by The Harvard Lampoon, an undergraduate humor publication founded in 1876 at Harvard University. It is the world's longest-running humor magazine still in publication. The organization also produces occasional humor books (the best known being the 1969 J.R.R. Tolkien parody Bored of the Rings) and parodies of national magazines such as Entertainment Weekly and Sports Illustrated. The organization licensed the "Lampoon" name to National Lampoon, begun by Harvard Lampoon graduates in 1970.
