In 2010, the year of his untimely death, the Brazilian writer Wilson Bueno delivered a thought-provoking talk at the first event of Brazil’s Lewis Carroll Society. The address was titled, “One Day Alice, 2010.” On that occasion, Bueno presented the artist Adriana Peliano with a copy of his short story “Mínima Alice.” The artist kept the text filed away, and in 2015, she decided to publish it with her illustrations in an edition specially crafted to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
