Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A brilliant, perceptive, and deeply moving fable.”
—Boston Sunday Globe

 

Publishers Weekly calls Gregory Maguires Lost “a deftly written, compulsively readable modern-day ghost story.” Brilliantly weaving together the literary threads of J.M. Barries Peter Pan, Charles Dickenss A Christmas Carol, and the Jack the Ripper stories, the bestselling author of The Wicked Years canon creates a captivating fairy tale for the modern world. With Lost, Maguire—who re-imagined a darker, more dangerous Oz, and inspired the creation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway blockbuster Wicked—delivers a haunting tale of shadows and phantoms and things going bump in the night, confirming his reputation as “one of contemporary fictions most assured myth-makers” (Kirkus Reviews).

Synopsis:

Winifred Rudge travels to London to jump-start her new novel about a woman who is being haunted by the ghost of Jack the Ripper. Upon her arrival, she finds that her stepcousin and old friend John Comestor has disappeared, and a ghostly presence seems to have taken over his apartment in the nineteenth-century rowhouse once owned by Winnie's great-great-grandfather. Is it the spirit of this ancestor, who, family legend claims, was Charles Dickens's childhood inspiration for Ebenezer Scrooge? Could it be the ghostly remains of Jack the Ripper? Or a phantasm derived from a more arcane and insidious origin?

Winnie begins to investigate, but finds herself the unwilling audience for a drama of specters and shades, some from her family's peculiar history and some from her own unvanquished past. Lost presents a rich fictional world that will enrapture Gregory Maguire's eager audience.

Synopsis:

From the author of "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister" and "Wicked" comes a virtual literary paella of adult and children's fantasies. The result is a compelling modern-day ghost story that easily elicits suspension of disbelief. Unabridged. 10 CDs.
