From one of the world’s most beloved storytellers––#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman––comes his first adult novel in eight years. Wondrous and imaginative, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lanecaptures the very essence of childhood fear and uncertainty. In a clash of memory and reality, it is a pitched fever dream of a novel, and could very well be Gaiman’s most accomplished work to date.

“Poignant and heartbreaking, eloquent and frightening, impeccably rendered, it’s a fable that reminds us how our lives are shaped by childhood experiences, what we gain from them and the price we pay.” –– Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

 “Gaiman mines mythological typology––the three-fold goddess, the water of life (the pond, actually an ocean)––and his own childhood milieu to build the cosmology and theater of a story he tells more gracefully than anything he’s told since Stardust (1999).” ––Booklist (starred review)

Neil Gaiman is an English author who now lives in the US. He is the author of short fiction, novels, comic books, graphic novels, audio theatre and films. His notable works include the comic book series The Sandman and novels Stardust, American Gods, Coraline, and The Graveyard Book. He has won numerous awards, including Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, Newbery Medal, and Carnegie Medal. He is the first author to win both the Newbery and the Carnegie medals for the same work, The Graveyard Book (2008). Read more about Gaiman on his website.

In May 2012, Neil Gaiman delivered the commencement address at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, in which he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength. He encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he urged them to make good art. The book Make Good Art, designed by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, contains the full text of Gaiman’s inspiring speech. Watch the video.

Geoff Boucher is a staff writer at Entertainment Weekly. Prior to EW he was at the Los Angeles Times where he had more than 2,800 stories published and where he most recently covered entertainment. While at the Los Angeles Times, he also created the award-winning website, Hero Complex, and is the author of Two Badges, the biography of a gang member turned cop.  He interviewed John Lithgow at Live Talks Los Angeles in 2011.  See the video.  And also interviewed Wyclef Jean for Live Talks in September 2012. See the video.
