WAS is the story of Dorothy. Orphaned as a child in the 1870s, she goes to live in Kansas with her Aunty Em and Uncle Henry. They face drought and poverty. They face each other. Alone, abused, Dorothy meets an itinerant actor called Frank and inspires a masterpiece.

From the settling of the West and the heyday of the Hollwywood studios to the glittering megalopolis of modern Los Angeles, WAS is the story of all our childhoods.

Review:

A mediation on art, lies and human pain. None of Ryman's books is quite like any of the others - this is one of his most straightforward and best (Roz Kaveneny Time Out)

Book Description:

WAS is a classic fantasy by an inspired writer

Book Description Penguin Books, 1993. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This haunting, wildly original novel explores the lives of several characters entwined by The Wizard of Oz--both the novel written by L. Frank Baum and the strangely resonant 1939 film. Was traverses the American landscape to reveal how the human imagination transcends the bleakest circumstance. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140178724
