Description
"A delight....[A] funny and warmhearted exploration of the sacred and the profane." --Washington Post

"Reading The Next Queen of Heaven is like hanging on to the back of an out-of-control carnival ride--terrifying, thrilling, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure."

--Ann Patchett

New York Times bestseller Gregory Maguire--who re-imagined the land of Oz and all its fabled inhabitants in his monumental series, The Wicked Years--brings us The Next Queen of Heaven, a wildly farcical and gloriously imaginative tall tale of faith, Catholic dogma, lust, and questionable miracles on the eve of Y2K. The very bizarre and hilarious goings on in the eccentric town of Thebes make for a delightfully mad reading experience--as The Next Queen of Heaven shows off the acclaimed author of Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and Mirror Mirror in a brilliant new heavenly light.
