In this much-anticipated third volume of the Wicked Years, we return to Oz, seen now through the eyes of the Cowardly Lion - the once tiny cub defended by Elphaba in Wicked. While civil war looms, a tetchy oracle named Yackle prepares for death. Before her final hour, an enigmatic figure known as Brrr - the Cowardly Lion - arrives searching for information about Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West. As payment, Yackle demands some answers of her own. Brrr surrenders his story: abandoned as a cub, his earliest memories are gluey hazes, and his life's path is no Yellow Brick Road. A Lion Among Men chronicles a battle of wits hastened by the Emerald City's approaching armies. At once a portrait of a would-be survivor and a panoramic glimpse of a world gone shrill with war fever, Gregory Maguire's new novel is written with the sympathy and power that have made his books contemporary classics.

In this third volume of Gregory Maguire's series following Wicked and Son of a Witch, we return to his wildly reimagined Oz, seen now through the eyes of the Cowardly Lion. "Hardly more than a kitten. I had thought to call it Prrr, but it shivers more often than it purrs, so I call it Brrr instead," said Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, who had an early hand in the Lion's fate. Years later, having helped Dorothy defeat Elphaba, and with civil war in Oz looming, Brrr must find the ancient oracle Yackle to learn what he can of the secrets of Elphaba's power. Fans of Maguire's darker, more complex Oz will not be disappointed with this installment, as Brrr also learns much about his own past and his destiny. 312. Bookseller Inventory # 61645
