Not a fan of Fantasy? This is your chance to dip that little toe in the genre...
Gregory Maguire, whose Wicked (1995), is enjoying a second life as a big-budget Broadway Musical will release its much-anticipated sequel Son of a Witch on Sept. 29th.
The story picks up where Dorothy did in Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West and brought about spectacular changes in the Land of Oz – not all of them pleasant. A caravan leader stumbled upon a badly hurt young man, Liir, who might be the dead witch’s rumored secreted son. The ensuing tale is one of great drama, eccentric characters and object lessons.
(Starred review from Publishers Weekly, and Library Journal called it "A tale that adroitly mixes drama, humor, and political satire into a well-knit examination of good and evil.") I guarantee you will be clicking your heels for more.
