"A brilliant achievement."
"Entertaining...profound....A novel for adults that unearths our buried fascination with the primal fears and truths fairy tales contain."
-Christian Science Monitor
Gregory Maguire, the acclaimed author who re-imagined a darker, more dangerous Land of Oz in his New York Times bestselling series The Wicked Years, offers a brilliant reinvention of the timeless Snow White fairy tale: Mirror Mirror. Setting his story amid the cultural, political and artistic whirlwind of Renaissance Italy-and casting the notorious Lucrezia Borgia as the Evil Queen-Maguire and Mirror Mirror will enthrall a wide array of book lovers ranging from adult fans of Harry Potter to readers of the sophisticated stories of Angela Carter.
