Fame is nice, but what about infamy? Edgy Pages is a club for exploring books that are the stuff of controversy and scandal, or inherently provocative.

Gregory Maguire's Wicked has captivated readers worldwide, offering a fresh perspective on the beloved world of Oz. It cleverly intertwines elements from L. Frank Baum's original novel and the iconic MGM film, while introducing new characters and complexities. The story follows Elphaba, a misunderstood girl born with emerald-green skin, as she navigates the challenges of a corrupt Oz. Determined to protect the marginalized Animals and confront the oppressive Wizard, Elphaba's journey leads her to embrace her identity as a witch. Wicked has not only become a literary sensation but also inspired a long-running Broadway musical. Unique in its genre, the novel blends elements of magical realism and mythopoeic fantasy, making it a timeless classic for generations to come.
