There are books we cherish as children and ones we appreciate more fully the older we get. Then there are books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane,
a work that completely traverses the landscapes of childhood and adult
life, like an existential funhouse mirror that shows the reader who they
were and who they’ll always be. Neil Gaiman’s latest novel is a fairy
tale, a morality lesson and most importantly, an exquisitely gorgeous
story of growing up and the power of friendship. 

— Zack


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...
