“It’s impossible to deny the magic of Gregory Maguire.”—New York Newsday
A special 25th anniversary hardcover edition of the beloved multi-million-copy-bestselling novel and basis of the Tony Award–winning musical.
Gregory Maguire's groundbreaking New York Times bestseller redefines the land of Oz, its inhabitants, its Wizard, and the Emerald City, viewing the world created by L. Frank Baum through a darker and greener lens. Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers a radical new portrait of one of the most feared and despised villains in all of literature: the universally maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, in Maguire’s imaginative retelling, isn’t nearly as black-hearted as we imagined.
