Son of a Witch: My Journey from the Streets to the Stove (Wicked Years #2) (Paperback)
The Wicked Years continue in Gregory Maguire's Son of a Witch--the heroic saga of the hapless yet determined young man who may or may not be the offspring of the fabled Wicked Witch of the West. A New York Times bestseller like its predecessor, the remarkable Wicked, Son of a Witch follows the boy Liir on his dark odyssey across an ingeniously re-imagined and nearly unrecognizable Land of Oz--a journey that will take him deep into the bowels of the Emerald City, lately abandoned by the Wizard, and into the jaws of dragons. At once a grim fairy tale and an uplifting adventure, Son of a Witch is a true wonder.
“Maguire is full of storytelling brio . . . his Oz is meticulously drawn.”
-New York Times
“A tale that adroitly mixes drama, humor, and political satire into a well-knit examination of good and evil.”
“Maguire has done it again: Son of a Witch is as wicked as they come. . . . Thoroughly entertaining.”
“Maguire’s captivating, fully imagined world of horror and wonder illuminates the links between good and evil, retribution and forgiveness.”
“As fantastical as a novel set in Oz should be.”
For Wicked:“I fell quickly and totally under the spell of this remarkable, wry, and fully realized story.”
-—Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone and I Know This Much is True
“Save a place on the shelf between Alice and The Hobbit—that spot is well deserved.”
