THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE by Neil Gaiman

June 21, 2013

Neil Gaiman spoke about his book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, at GW's Lisner Auditorium on Friday, June 21, 2013. In this video, Gaiman introduces the audience to his first novel in six years, to much excitement and applause.

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 Lane (Wm. Morrow, $25.99) captures 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.
