OFF THE SHELF: Authors in Conversation with Joe Donahue - Neil Gaiman presenting THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE. 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 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.

“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)

Venue: Saratoga City Center, 522 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
