THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 'BOOK OF THE YEAR' AN ACCLAIMED WEST END THEATRE PRODUCTION ***** 'Neil Gaiman's entire body of work is a feat of elegant sorcery. He writes with such assurance and originality that the reader has no choice but to surrender to a waking dream' ARMISTEAD MAUPIN 'Some books just swallow you up, heart and soul' JOANNE HARRIS 'Summons both the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, and the complicated landscape of memory and forgetting' GUARDIAN --- 'My favourite response to this book is when people say, 'My childhood was nothing like that - and it was as if I was reading about me' NEIL GAIMAN --- This is what he remembers, as he sits by the ocean at the end of the lane: A dead man on the back seat of the car, and warm milk at the farmhouse. An ancient little girl, and an old woman who saw the moon being made. A beautiful housekeeper with a monstrous smile. And dark forces woken that were best left undisturbed. They are memories hard to believe, waiting at the edges of things. The recollections of a man who thought he was lost but is now, perhaps, remembering a time when he was saved . . . NEIL GAIMAN.

Magical Realism in A Monster Calls and The Ocean at the End of the Lane Book Description:

Magical realism as a literary mode has been the cause of numerous debates since the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude by the Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez in 1967, which the majority of critics consider to be the first magical realist novel. Magical realism has been frequently confused with fantasy and is still considered by some as the latter's branch. Though there is no unified definition of magical realism, critics have agreed upon some of the most common characteristics. The present thesis makes use of Wendy B. Faris's theoretical framework on the mode's characteristics and applies it to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. In both novels, marvellous happenings are incorporated seamlessly into a realistic narrative, which is the basic definition of magical realism. The events are presented matter-of-factly; thus, readers perceive them as realistic. Both novels also contain the primary characteristics that define magical realism as a literary mode, according to Faris. A Monster Calls has been adapted into a movie as well as translated into Slovene as Sedem minut čez polnoč. In the translation, magical realism retains its characteristics, since it is mainly a content based literary mode. In the movie, however, visual representations of the irreducible element, i. e. the yew tree monster, offer the viewers an opportunity to perceive it as ordinary.

You Let Me In Book Description:

You Let Me In delivers a stunning tale from debut author Camilla Bruce, combining the sinister domestic atmosphere of Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects with the otherworldly thrills of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Cassandra Tipp is dead...or is she? After all, the notorious recluse and eccentric bestselling novelist has always been prone to flights of fancy—everyone in town remembers the shocking events leading up to Cassie's infamous trial (she may have been acquitted, but the insanity defense only stretches so far). Cassandra Tipp has left behind no body—just her massive fortune, and one final manuscript. Then again, there are enough bodies in her past—her husband Tommy Tipp, whose mysterious disembowelment has never been solved, and a few years later, the shocking murder-suicide of her father and brother. Cassandra Tipp will tell you a story—but it will come with a terrible price. What really happened, out there in the woods—and who has Cassie been protecting all along? Read on, if you dare...

Neil Gaiman Book Description:

Live At The Aladdin captures the Portland, Oregon stop on Neil Gaiman's eighth and final reading tour to benefit the non-profit Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. More than four hundred fans paid to attend this special event, which includes dramatic readings from his short fiction and poetry, including stories from his collections Angels & Visitations and Smoke and Mirrors. Of particular note is the short story "Chivalry", which Miramax President Harvey Weinstein personally optioned for film. Gaiman's readings have a stronger performative aspect than what one commonly expects from an author reading. "I've been doing these tours since 1993", said Gaiman. "I've really enjoyed returning people to the days when an author would take his work to the public, when a literary reading was something exciting, fun, and theatrical. Dickens did it. Oscar Wilde did it And, in a much lesser way, so have I". Apart from the reading itself, Gaiman's performance includes a lively Q&A segment that is sure to entertain even the most casual fan of his work. In addition to Gaiman's performance, Live At The Aladdin includes behind-the-scenes documentary footage and interview segments shot over the course of his reading tour, making this tape a must-have for any fan of his work.
