Review quote

Adventures in Wonderland is destined to be the definitive account of contemporary dance culture ... If you weren't at Shoom in '87, then this is the best way to make up for it. - The Face

Garratt's is the pick of the dance music tomes ... She has spoken to everyone involved and shows that it's possible to write about popular culture without insulting our intelligence. - Mirror

A (soon-to-be) classic ... Gripping and vivid ... Garratt is a pro. She writes with the style and attitude of the feistiest club diva ... Her personal memories are wedged between layers of insightful comment and thorough research. - The Times

'[Garratt] effortlessly weaves together what is quite a complex tale, peppering it with exactly the sort of mad anecdotes that are so much part of the clubbing experience. Nice one. - Guardian
