Journey back to the Land of Oz in Breaking Silver, a revisionist novel from Jade Crawford, author of Rough Magic and Amma. Slated for Autumn 2017, Silver returns to Oz’s humanist roots.
“‘We wish to go to the Emerald City,” said the child, “and we have lost our way.”
-L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900)
Drawn primarily from Baum’s earliest Oz books, my third novel explores rural America through the eyes of the Gales, a family of outcasts haunted by demons within and demons without. The Silver Shoes return come fall.
