Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. Oh I loved this book. The first chapter is slow but once you get into it wow what a ride. This is an adults view of OZ being written from the witches POV and 3/4 of the book takes place before Dorothy arrives in OZ and even then Dorothy only has a few lines in the last chapter.

I am also going in may to chicago to see the stage adaptation of the book.

He was at V'Romans (a local independent book store) for Son of a Witch , the sequel to Wicked. He is a great speaker and very personable. He signed all his books that I owned and he loves the musical too. He signed our cd of it along with his books.
