It's the book description in the first post that sells it for me. "[S]trange and imaginative postmodernist fable ... puckish humor and bracing pessimism in this fantastical meditation on good and evil, God and free will ... has both idealism and cynicism in its discussion of social, religious, educational, and political issues present in Oz, and, more pointedly, present in our day and time." Sounds interesting; a lot more so than straight out fantasy.
