‘To send all his horses and all his men,’ Alice interrupted, rather unwisely.
‘Now I declare that’s too bad!’ Humpty Dumpty cried, breaking into a sudden passion.
‘You’ve been listening at doors — and behind trees — and down chimneys — or you couldn’t have known it!’
‘I haven’t indeed!’ Alice said very gently. ‘It’s in a book.’
The Fairway Galle Literary Festival offers you all the fun of listening at doors – and behind trees – and down chimneys – rather rare in the tropics – with much less work!
From 24 to 28 January 2018, Galle will once more come alive with the secret lives of murderers and madmen, of travelers and trains, of queens and quadrangles, all revealed in books.
Did Humpty Dumpty fall, or was he pushed? Can we know? Must we ask?
