The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman’s knack for making the impossible seem all too probable makes The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Wm. Morrow, $25.99), his first adult novel since 2005’s Anansi Boys, worth waiting for. Set in a British village, it features a children’s game that opens a Pandora’s Box of primal horrors in the town. Gaiman tends to focus on the dangerous, often gross, world of grown-ups that children sense they’re approaching, and his vivid narrative makes you remember every time you’ve experienced a prickle of the skin and wondered what wicked thing was hovering near.
