If you could ask your favorite author (alive or dead) one question … who would you ask, and what would the question be?
Just one favorite author? Really?
I’d probably ask Gregory Maguire why A Lion Among Men didn’t involve the little green girl from Son of a Witch. For me, the entire Wicked Years saga focuses on Elphaba and her line. It was such a disappointment to learn nothing about the little green girl and instead learn about two minor characters for an entire book. I just want to know why he thought a book focusing on The Cowardly Lion and minor characters from the two previous novels would be more interesting than that little green girl.
