In 2004, the original Broadway production of Wicked earned 10 Tony nominations, including best musical. Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, the show continues to run on Broadway and has touring companies throughout the United States and around the world. In Wicked: A Musical Biography, author Paul Laird explores the creation of this popular Broadway musical through an examination of draft scripts, interviews with major figures, and the study of primary musical sources such as sketches, drafts, and completed musical scores. Laird brings together an impressive amount of detail on the creation of Wicked, including a look at Maguire's novel, as well as the original source material, The Wizard of Oz. This volume also offers a history of the show's genesis along with examinations of the draft scenarios and scripts that demonstrate the show's development. Laird also explores Stephen Schwartz's life and work, providing an analysis of the composer and lyricist's work on the show through song drafts, sketches, and musical examples. Laird also surveys the show's critical reception in New York and London, noting how many critics failed to appreciate its qualities or anticipate its great success. The unusual nature of Wicked's story—dominated by two strong female leads—is also placed in the context of Broadway history. A unique look into a successful Broadway production, Wicked: A Musical Biography will be of interest to musicologists, theatre scholars, students, and general readers alike.

An astonishingly rich re-creation of the land of Oz, this book retells the story of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, who wasn't so wicked after all. Taking readers past the yellow brick road and into a phantasmagoric world rich with imagination and allegory, Gregory Maguire just might change the reputation of one of the most sinister characters in literature.

»Wicked« erzählt die aufregende Vorgeschichte des »Zauberers von Oz«. »... Mit seinem beeindruckenden bunten, lebendigen Schreibstil lässt Maguire ein Land auferstehen, das dem von Oz gleicht, aber mit witzigen und zynischen Charakteren aufwartet. Eine literarische Traumreise.« (eclipsed, 05/08) Als Dorothy im »Zauberer von Oz« über die Böse Hexe des Westens triumphierte, bekamen wir nur ihre Version der Geschichte erzählt. Aber was ist mit der geheimnisvollen Hexe selbst? Woher kam sie? Wie wurde sie so böse? Und nicht zuletzt: Wie gut ist das Gute und wie böse das Böse? Elphabas Geburt ist von einem Geheimnis begleitet, sie kam mit einer leuchtend grünen Haut zur Welt. Das eigensinnige Mädchen, das anders ist als die anderen, erlebt eine äußerst turbulente Kindheit: der Vater ein aufrechter und strenger Prediger, die Mutter eine leichtlebige Schönheit, dem Alkohol und den Männern zugetan. Während Elphaba an der Universität von Shiz Biologie studiert, ist der Zauberer von Oz dabei, die Rechte der »TIERE« - die im Gegensatz zu den einfachen Tieren sprechen können und eine Seele haben - beängstigend einzuschränken. Aber außer Elphaba scheint sich kaum jemand daran zu stören. In dem Oz von Maguire ist Elphaba, die »Böse Hexe des Westens«, gar nicht so böse, und sie ist auch keine richtige Hexe. Sie begegnet uns als eigenwillige Bewohnerin von Munchkinland, die radikale Schritte unternimmt, um den tyrannischen Zauberer von Oz zu stürzen ... Stimmen zum Buch »Spannend geschrieben, trotz des ernsten, mitunter beklemmenden Grundtons nicht ohne Humor und auf jeden Fall die unbedingt lesenswerte Vorgeschichte eines Kinderbuchklassikers.« Maren Bonacker (Bulletin Jugend & Literatur, 01.12.2008) »... Doch im Gegensatz zur stark vereinfachten Bühnenvariante bietet der Roman von Gregory Maguire ein neues und vielschichtiges Bild der altvertrauten Figur. Denn die "Böse Hexe des Westens" ist ein Mensch mit Wünschen, Sehnsüchten und Ängsten. Sie liebt, hofft kämpft und scheitert. Oz ist kein verträumtes Zauberland, sondern ein von Intrigen und Kämpfen durchzogenes Land. So wie unsere Welt im wirklichen Leben.« Peter M Hetzel (Schweizer Illustrierte, 4.02.2008) »Halten Sie einen Platz frei im Regal zwischen "Alice im Wunderland" und "Der Hobbit" - es lohnt sich.« Kirkus Review »Bewitching« Chicago Tribune »Was muss ich tun?«, fragte das Mädchen. »Die Böse Hexe des Westens töten«, erwiderte Oz.

Winning a stubborn lady turns into the battle of his life for a powerful knight. Lady Sofia Howard has sworn never to marry, after her young heart was broken by an arrogant young squire. She's spurned every suitor to the dismay of her guardian, King Edward I, who finds that even increasing her dower prize will not lure men to offer for the defiant but lonely Sofia. So the king takes matters into his own hands and betroths Sofia to Sir Tobin de Clare, the man who once broke her heart. Passion explodes, and Sofia's tattered pride demands that Sir Tobin surrender his heart. A battle of wills ensues that makes war seem tame, when nothing will stop this ruthless warrior from winning his lady. In a classic Barnett battle of will and wit, a knight and his lady find that love at first sight is dangerous at best and never, ever easy. Wicked has all the pageantry of Medieval England, liberally laced with poignancy and humor.

Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called upon by the sheriff's department in rural, upstate New York to assist on a developing situation that involves a reclusive Amish settlement and the death of a young girl. Unable to penetrate the wall of silence between the Amish and "English" communities, the sheriff asks Kate to travel to New York, pose as an Amish woman, and infiltrate the community. Kate's long time love interest, State Agent John Tomasetti, is dead set against her taking on such an unorthodox assignment, knowing she'll have limited communication - and even less in the way of backup. But Kate can't turn her back, especially when the rumor mill boils with disturbing accounts of children in danger. She travels to New York where she's briefed and assumes her new identity as a lone widow seeking a new life. Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep under cover. In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and herself, alone... trapped in a fight for her life.

Maureen Swanson is the scourge of the neighborhood. At age nine, she already has a reputation as a hard slapper, a loud laugher, a liar, and a stay-after-schooler. The other kids call her Stinky. So sometimes when Maureen passes the crumbling (and haunted?) Messerman mansion, she imagines that she is Maureen Messerman–rich, privileged, and powerful. Then she finds a way into the forbidden, boarded-up house. In the hall are portraits of seven young women wearing elaborate gowns and haughty expressions. Maureen has something scathing to say to each one, but then she notices that the figures seem to have shifted in their frames. So she reaches out her finger to touch the paint–just to make sure–and touches . . . silk! These seven daughters of privilege are colder and meaner than Maureen ever thought to be. They are wicked, wicked ladies, and Maureen has something they want. . . .

A recently widowed fantasy writer is guided through a stormy winter evening by the voice of her late husband. An elderly lady with Charles Bonnet syndrome comes to terms with the little people she keeps seeing, while a newly formed populist group gathers to burn down her retirement residence. A woman born with a genetic abnormality is mistaken for a vampire, and a crime committed long ago is revenged in the Arctic via a 1.9 billion-year-old stromatolite. In these nine tales, Margaret Atwood ventures into the shadowland earlier explored by fabulists and concoctors of dark yarns such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Daphne du Maurier and Arthur Conan Doyle - and also by herself, in her award-winning novel Alias Grace. In Stone Mattress, Margaret Atwood is at the top of her darkly humorous and seriously playful game.
