Listen to Neil Gaiman talk about his new novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane:
How to describe Neil Gaiman to the uninitiated? To start, he’s a novelist, graphic-novelist screenwriter, YA-fiction author, blogger, prolific short storyist, frequent tweeter, and occasional Doctor Who episode writer. I guess you could say that he uses words a lot, mostly to craft dark, fantastical worlds—including those of Neverwhere, American Gods, and The Sandman series—that have gained him an adoring and devoted following. His latest novel is The Ocean at the End of the Lane, published in June. Earlier this summer, Gaiman read from the book and took audience questions at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
