The third extraordinary novel in Gregory Maguire's bestselling Wicked series, featuring the beloved Cowardly Lion As civil war looms in Oz, an ancient and tetchy oracle named Yackle prepares for death.
Before she can return to dust, however, the Cowardly Lion, an enigmatic figure named Brrr, arrives seeking knowledge about Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West - the woman who defended him when he was a cub.
But Yackle, too, demands answers of her own. Brilliant and entertaining, A Lion Among Men is another stellar work from the wildly imaginative and talented Gregory Maguire.
