From the dust jacket-

"While he was on vacation in the West Indies, Moser watched a huge storm from the porch of his rented cottage. Against the violently darkening backdrop of sea and sky, he imagined - "saw" - a disembodied head in the midst of the storm, and thought - "the Wizard of Oz!" From that beginning came an interpretation of Dorothy's adventures which matches in excitement and originality Moser's celebrated vision of the adventures of another young lady, Alice."
