A Lion Among Men (Volume Three in the Wicked Years) by Gregory Maguire

Having seen the paths of all the other original characters through the “Wicked” lens, Maguire now focuses his lens on The Cowardly Lion formally known as Brrr in order to re-examine the life and time of Elphaba and her descendants. Having already revolutionized him as a fop having his curls twirled by Nick Chopper the Tin Woodsman, Maguire now takes us through the life of Brr after he escaped from captivity as he wanders through life just trying to get by and always being discouraged.

As always, a delightful incursion into fancy and an interesting twist in silver shoes.
