The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Hardcover)
"Channeling Robert Aikman and his past work in The Sandman, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane is a book that sits squarely between Gaiman’s two major styles; it has the concentration and darkness that permeates his best short stories yet has the expansiveness that defines his longer works. At 178 pages it’s tough to talk about the plot without giving much away so I’ll just say that if you love Gaiman’s work or if you love tales about childhood and the power of storytelling and myth, then you will love this addition to the Neil Gaiman canon."— Joe
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...
