Some brief overview of book
In this captivating New York Times bestseller, beloved author Gregory Maguire returns to the land of Oz and introduces us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Is he really Elphabas son? He has her broom and her capebut what of her powers?
In an Oz that, since the Wizards departure, is under new and dangerous management, can Liir keep his head down long enough to grow up? not yet developed allergies. Biography Raised in a family of writers (his father was a journalist and his stepmother a poet), Gregory Maguire grew up with a great love of books, especially fairy tales and fantasy fiction. He composed his own stories from an early age and released his first book for children, The Lightning Time, in 1978, just two years after graduating from the State University of New York at Albany.
Several other childrens book followed, but major recognition eluded Maguire. Then, in 1995, he published his first adult novel. A bold, revisionist view of Frank L.
Baums classic Oz stories, Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West places one of literatures most reviled characters at the center of a dark dystopian fantasy and raises provocative questions about the very nature of good and evil. Purists criticized Maguire for tampering with a beloved juvenile classic, but the book received generally good reviews (John Updike, writing in The New Yorker, proclaimed it an amazing novel.) and the enthusiasm of readers catapulted it to the top of the bestseller charts. (Maguires currency increased even further when the book was turned into the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Wicked in 2003.) In the wake of his breakthrough novel, Maguire has made something of a specialty out of turning classic childrens tales on their heads.
He retold the legends of Cinderella and Snow White in Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (1999) and Mirror, Mirror (2003); he raised the ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge in Lost (2001); and, in 2005, he returned to Oz for Son of a Witch, the long-awaited sequel to Wicked. He has reviewed fantasy fiction for the Sunday New York Times Book Review and has contributed his own articles, essays, and stories to publications like Ploughshares, The Boston Review, the Christian Science Monitor, and The Horn Book Magazine. In addition, Maguire has never lost his interest in or enthusiasm for childrens literature.
He is the author of The Hamlet Chronicles, a bestselling seven-book series of high-camp mystery-adventures with silly count-down titles like Seven Spiders Spinning and Three Rotten Eggs. He has taught at the Center for the Study of Childrens Literature at Simmons College and is a founding member of Childrens Literature New England (CLNE), a nonprofit organization that focuses attention on the significance of literature in the lives of children. Good To Know In our interview, Maguire shared some fun facts with us about his life While I pride myself on trying to be creative in all areas of my life, I have occasionally gone overboard, like the time I decided to bring to a party a salad that I constructed, on a huge rattan platter, to look like a miniature scale model of the Gardens of Babylon.
I built terraces with chunks of Monterey jack, had a forest of broccoli florets and a lagoon of Seven Seas salad dressing spooned into a half a honeydew melon. I made reed patches out of scallion tips and walkways out of sesame seeds lined with raisin borders. Driving to the party, I had to brake to avoid a taxi, and by the time the police flagged me down for poor driving skills I was nearly weeping.
But Officer, I have a quickly decomposing Hanging Gardens of Babylon to deliver.... Everything had slopped and fallen over and it looked like a tray of vegetable garbage. My first job was scooping ice cream at Friendlys in Albany, New York.
I hated the work, most of my colleagues, and the uniform, and I more or less lost my taste for ice cream permanently. If I hadnt been a writer, I would have tried to be one of the following An artist (watercolors), a singersongwriter like Paul Simon (taller but not very much more), an architect (domestic), a teacher. Actually, in one way or another I have done all of the above, but learned pretty quickly that my skills needed more honing for me to charge for my services, and Id always rather write fiction than hone skills.
I steal a bit from one of my favorite writers to say, simply, that I enjoy, most of all, old friends and new places. I love to travel. Having small children at home now impedes my efforts a great deal, but I have managed in my time to get to Asia, Africa, most of Europe, and Central America.
My wish list of places not yet visited includes India, Denmark, Brazil, and New Zealand, and my wish for friends not yet made includes, in a sense, readers who are about to discover my work, either now or even when Im no longer among the living. In a sense, in anticipation, I value those friends in a special way.
