Help me spin this.

I quit my last job due to poor management. I know that interviewers don't want to hear an applicant speak negatively about former employers. Help me spin this.

Specifically, I'm worried about conflict between the answers to "Why did you leave your last job?" and "Have you had any issues with your previous boss?"
The man who made my worklife unbearable is no longer with my former company. He was my supervisor's supervisor. If he, specifically, hadn't been there, there's a good chance I'd still be with said company. I didn't have any issues with any of the other supervisors.
I've been freelancing for a little over a year since I quit said job. Could I perhaps answer the first question with something like, "I want to return to [industry]," and gloss over quitting my previous job?
I hate interviews, but they're necessary, and I have two coming up. Any help would be appreciated!
