“A delight….[A] funny and warmhearted exploration of the sacred and the profane.”
Washington Post<_o3a_p>


“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.”<_o3a_p>

—Ann Patchett<_o3a_p>

<_o3a_p> 

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.<_o3a_p>

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only got 40 pages It may have gotten better, but if a book hasn't captured my interest within 40 pages, it probably isn't going to. I have read all of Gregory Maguire's other novels and have enjoyed them all. I knew this one was different, and I'm open to authors trying out new things, but this felt like a bad attempt to copy Christopher Moore's style, but without the humor. The first 40 pages were all I read, and I found them to be a jumble of story lines with absolutely no flow. I could not get into this, but I tip my hat to anyone else who can and enjoys it. Please feel free to comment, maybe I'm missing something big!
