"Exquisite...As inspiring in its way as Patti Smith's memoir Just Kids." --Los Angeles Times

"Briskly addictive . . . Told in the voice of a female rock Ulysses." --O, the Oprah Magazine

"Marvelous . . . D'Erasmo conjures up the seedy, sexy spectacle of life on the road with amazing vividness, and fills in the inner life of a woman who has one last chance to get her voice heard." --Lev Grossman, Time

Anna Brundage is a rock star. She was an overnight indie sensation, but lost her fame just as fast as she found it. Now forty-four, she pours everything into a comeback, selling her famous father's art to finance an album and a European tour. A riveting look at the life of a musician and the moving story of a woman's unconventional path, Wonderland is a glimpse of how it feels when a wish just might come true.

"Anna made me think of Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, mixed with a little bit of Janis." -- Paste

"Richly interior . . . What makes Anna such a powerful narrator is her seductive desire to keep her options open." -- Washington Post
