Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister: A Novel

by Gregory Maguire

“[An] engrossing story...endearing and memorable.”—Boston Herald“[An] arresting hybrid of mystery, fairy tale, and historical novel.”—Detroit Free Press“A tale so movingly told that you will say at the end of the first reading, ‘It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book this good.’” —Nashville Tennessean Gregory Maguire proves himself to be “one of contemporary fiction’s most assured myth-makers” (Kirkus Reviews) with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, his ingenious and provocative retelling of the timeless Cinderella fairy tale. Perhaps best known for his dark and breathtaking Oz series The Wicked Years—including the novel Wicked, which inspired the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical—Maguire is a master at upending the ordinary to help us see the familiar in a brilliant new light.
