Maguire, Gregory
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.
Harper Collins, New York, 1995. First edition of Gregory Maguire's immensely popular reinvention of Oz. Octavo, original illustrated boards, cartographic endpapers. Signed by the author on the half-title page, who added the last line of this novel as follows, "And there the wicked old witch stayed for a good long time." "And did she ever come out?" "Not yet." Gregory Maguire August 20, 2014." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Illustrated by Douglas Smith. Following the traditions of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Gardner and J.R.R. Tolkien, Wicked is a richly woven tale that takes us to the other, darker side of the rainbow as novelist Gregory Maguire chronicles the Wicked Witch of the West's odyssey through the complex world of Oz -- where people call you wicked if you tell the truth. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
