'The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills.' -- Kirkus Reviews 20060715 'Gaiman has a deft touch for suprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments' -- Publishers Weekly 20060617 'Predominantly dark, the stories are occasionally whimsical and satirical, and at times humorous, but the book's underlying theme is fragility and how people, dreams and hearts are so easily broken' -- Sun Herald 20061121 'Immensely entertaining ... Combines the anarchy of Douglas Adams with a Wodehousian generosity of spirit' -- Susanna Clarke 20061121
Neil Gaiman is a messy-haired white male author trapped in the body of an identical white male author with perhaps even less-tidy hair. His books and comics have won many awards. He thanks you for your offer of a comb but does not believe it would do any good. Despite being English, he lives more in America than he does anywhere else in the world, and is currently somewhere in his mid-forties.
