Current: Wicked by Gregory Maguire  



Wicked
Gregory Maguire



Maguire's Wicked is a brilliant reinterpretation of a what was, at one time, a brilliant children's novel.

A fantastic rejig, taking a sideways step from the conceptualization of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

A dark, somewhat innocent look at what it was to be made into a horrible figure of hatred and anxiety, this is a book that really questions deliberate socio-political norms in the world of "humanity".

But while the musical may seem like family fare...the book really isn't.
