Neil Gaiman in conversation with Philip Pullman
Neil Gaiman, one of our greatest living fiction writers, comes to Oxford to celebrate the publication of his new novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
This will be Neil's first novel for adults since the Anansi Boys in 2005. His other notable works include American Gods, Neverwhere, Stardust (now a major motion picture) and his famous graphic novel series The Sandman. He has also recently written two acclaimed episodes of Doctor Who (The Doctor’s Wife and Nightmare in Silver.)
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a fable that reshapes modern fantasy: moving, terrifying and elegiac - as pure as a dream, as delicate as a butterfly's wing, as dangerous as a knife in the dark, from the storytelling genius that is Neil Gaiman.
Neil will be in conversation with Oxford's own master of fantasy Philip Pullman, author of the classic Dark Materials trilogy.
This is sure to be an evening to remember with two giants of modern fiction.
Neil Gaiman and Philip Pullman will both be signing at the end of the evening. Neil Gaiman will sign all copies of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, plus one other title.
Venue: Oxford Playhouse | Category: Talk | Running Time: : 60mins followed by book signing
