Gregory Maguire: Something Wicked This Way Comes

WED, DEC 7, 2011 (1:16:14)

“With the publication of Out of Oz, the fourth and, perhaps, final volume in the series of books that began with Wicked in 1995, Gregory Magurie has spent more than 15 years in the land of Oz and has accumulated enough miles on the yellow brick road to be able to look back on his journey of imagination in the world that L. Frank Baum first brought to the page a century ago. What is its like to step into another writer’s story and re-imagine it from the inside out? What are the satisfactions in re-imagining a beloved tale? What are the pitfalls? Are there ethical considerations: when does re-telling become plagiarism?”
