Wicked, The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, Gregory Maguire|
"[What] of the Witch? In the life of a Witch, there is no after, in the ever after of a Witch, there is no happily; in the story of a Witch, there is no afterword. Of that part that is byond the life story, beyond the story of the life, there is--alas, or perhaps thank mercy--no telling. She is dead, dead and gone, and all that was left of her was the carapace of her reputation for malice." . . .
