Neil Gaiman - The Ocean at the End of the Lane — at GW Lisner - SOLD OUT

at GW Lisner Auditorium
730 21st Street NW

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 (Wm. Morrow, $25.99) 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.
This event is sold out and, as of June 19, we can no longer accept pre-orders for signed books. Apologies for any inconvenience.
