But ANNOTATED GLASS is not a gloss on Through the Looking Glass and Knorr’s Alice is no buttoned-up and pinafored Victorian child. Illumined everywhere with intelligence, emotional complexity, and deep compassion for its characters, this masterfully interwoven sequence unfurls. Composed of brief graceful lyrics—some erotic, some funny, some astonished by happiness and good fortune, some interfused with wistful sadness—a narrative develops. Knorr creates compelling and complex characters startled to find what they thought was ordinary life suddenly turned inside-out and backwards.—Jennifer Atkinson, author of CANTICLE OF THE NIGHT PATH
