The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
Neil Gaiman came to the Crystal Ballroom in Portland to promote “The Ocean at the End of the Lane”, his latest book. He spoke, read a chapter of the book, and then spent close to 4 hours signing books. What an enjoyable experience!
Book InfoThe Ocean at the End of the Lane
by Neil Gaiman
Publisher: William Morrow
Source: Author Book Signing
Reason: Gaiman's newest book. Traveled to Portland with my son to see the author at the Crystal Ballroom.
A brilliantly imaginative and poignant fairy tale from the modern master of wonder and terror, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is Neil Gaiman’s first new novel for adults since his #1 New York Times bestseller Anansi Boys.
This bewitching and harrowing tale of mystery and survival, and memory and magic, makes the impossible all too real
I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).
