From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a new novel of the impossible made all too frighteningly real.

"They say you cannot go home again, and that is as true as a knife . . ."

A man returns to the site of his childhood home where, years before, he knew a girl named Lettie Hempstock who showed him the most marvelous, dangerous, and outrageous things, but when he gets there he learns that nothing is as he remembered.

Wondrous, imaginative, impossible, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is classic Neil Gaiman and has captured the hearts of readers everywhere.

About the Author

Neil Gaiman was born in Portchester, England on November 10, 1960. Gaiman worked as a journalist and freelance writer for a time, before deciding to try his hand at comic books. Some of his work has appeared in publications such as Time Out, The Sunday Times, Punch and The Observer. His first comic endeavor was the graphic novel series The Sandman. It is the comic book he is most famous for and the series has won every major industry award, including 9 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, 3 Harvey Awards, and the 1991 World Fantasy Award for best short story, making it the first comic ever to win a literary award. He writes both children and adult books. His adult books include Stardust, which won the Mythopoeic Award as best novel for adults in 1999; American Gods, which won the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus awards; and Anansi Boys. His children's books include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish; Coraline, which won the Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla, the BSFA, the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Bram Stoker awards; The Wolves in the Walls; and The Graveyard Book, which won the Newbery Award in 2009. He also co-wrote Good Omens with Terry Pratchett. He is currently working on making a film of one of his early books, Neverwhere. His most recent work is entitled Fortunately, the Milk.

Editorial Reviews

"Gaiman (Anansi Boys) has crafted a fresh story of magic, humanity, loyalty, and memories ''waiting at the edges of things,'' where lost innocence can be restored as long as someone is willing to bear the cost." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Ocean at the End of the Lane

"Gaiman mines mythological typology-the three-foldgoddess, 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 any he''s told since Stardust...this lovely yarn is good for anyone who can read it." - Booklist (starred review) on Ocean at the End of the Lane

"The Ocean at the End of the Lane... is soaked in myth and memory and salt water and it is so, so lovely." - Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus on The Ocean at the End of the Lane
