Was : a novel
Geoff Ryman
Adult Fiction RYMAN

Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: This haunting, wildly original novel explores the lives of several characters entwined by The Wizard of Oz--both the novel written by L. Frank Baum and the strangely resonant 1939 film. Was traverses the American landscape to reveal how the human imagination transcends the bleakest circumstance.
