The Hearing Trumpet by Leonora Carrington
Leonora Carrington (1917–2011), the British-born Surrealist painter who made her home in Mexico City, was also a writer of imagination and charm, and The Hearing Trumpet is maybe her best loved book. Originally published in 1974, it tells the story of 92-year-old Marian Leatherby, who is given the gift of a hearing trumpet only to discover that her family has been plotting to have her committed to an institution. But this is an institution where the buildings are shaped like birthday cakes and igloos, where the Winking Abbess and the Queen Bee reign, and where the gateway to the underworld is wide open. It is also the scene of a mysterious murder. Occult twin to Alice in Wonderland, The Hearing Trumpet is a classic of fantastic literature.
