Mark Fisher, Alice in wonderland

In the Alice books, there is the feeling that Wonderland is Alice's world alone, yet she has no place in it. She is always late, in the way, misunderstanding what ought to be obvious ... In this way, Carroll is the precursor of Kafka, and ultimately Alice's Adventures In Wonderland has far more in common with The Trial and The Castle than with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe or The Wizard of Oz.
Quote from Mark Fisher k-punk

Mark Fisher's PhD thesis on Gothic Materialism has been and continues to be important to my thinking and practice and thank him for this. His latest book, CAPITALIST REALISM is on my want to read list.
