Everyone knows the story of young Dorothy Gale of Kansas, and her epic journey to meet the great and powerful Wizard of Oz. And we know that along the way she "liquidates" the Wicked Witch of the West. Back in 1995, Gregory Maguire built on L. Frank Baum's work to create "Wicked," the backstory of the Wicked Witch of the West. "Wicked" became a moden day cultural phenomenon.
My guest this week is Gregory Maguire, author of the novel Wicked among many other works. Though I’m sure you’re familiar with his book and the Broadway musical adaptation, you may not known the extent to which Gregory’s childhood was infused with elements of fairytale — from the fantasy novels he devoured, to the family tragedy that led to his time in an orphanage. We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First a big thanks to everyone who makes the Sewers of Paris possible with a pledge of support on Patreon!

This is Tony Awards season honoring the best on Broadway, so who better to talk to on The Sydcast then the acclaimed author of Wicked – Gregory Maguire. Listen in as I talk to Gregory about the creative process, where meaning and motivation come from, how our past shapes our present and future, and how a book becomes one of the most successful Broadway shows in history (one of the three highest grossing of all time). Gregory is wonderful to talk to because he is not only extraordinarily articulate but he is also emotionally with us in a way that perhaps only our closest friends might be. When you clip on your earbuds to tune in you’ll see what I mean – a man intellectually and intimately engaged with his audience. Gregory Maguire.
Mary Norris and Gregory Maguire, “Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen”
April 23, 2019 at the Boston Athenæum. In her New York Times best-selling Between You & Me, Mary Norris delighted readers with her irreverent tales of pencils, punctuation, and punctiliousness over three decades in The New Yorker’s celebrated copy department. In Greek to Me, she delivers another wise and witty paean to the art of expressing oneself clearly and convincingly, this time filtered through her greatest passion: all things Greek.From convincing her New Yorker bosses to pay for Ancient Greek studies to traveling the sacred way in search of Persephone, Greek to Me is an unforgettable account of both her lifelong love affair with words and her solo adventures in the land of olive trees and ouzo. Along the way, Norris explains how the alphabet originated in Greece, makes the case for Athena as a feminist icon, and reveals the surprising ways Greek helped form English. Filled with Norris’s memorable encounters with Greek words, Greek gods, Greek wine—and more than a few Greek waiters—Greek to Me is the Comma Queen’s fresh take on Greece and the exotic yet strangely familiar language that so deeply influences our own.
