Publisher Description

"A moving lament for lost childhoods and an eloquent tribute to the enduring power of art."--The New York Times

"Staggeringly original and profound...Extraordinary, wonderful." --Time Out

"A startling, stimulating book filled with angels and scarecrows, gargoyles and garlands, vaudeville and violence. Pynchon goes Munchkin, you might say."--Washington Post Book World

A haunting novel exploring the lives of characters intertwined with The Wizard of Oz: the "real" Dorothy Gale; Judy Garland's unhappy fame; and Jonathan, a dying actor, and his therapist, whose work at an asylum unwittingly intersects with the Yellow Brick Road.

Geoff Ryman is the author of The King's Last Song, Air, The Child Garden, The Unconquered Country, and Paradise Tales. He has lived in Cambodia and Brazil, and now teaches at the University of Manchester, England.

Amazing story

This book has stuck with me for years. I can't wait to read it yet again. Perhaps out loud in a very slightly tinny voice.
