Neil Gaiman presents The Ocean at the End of the Lane at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House on Tuesday, June 18, 7:00 PM

RSVP on Facebook!

Part of Unbound at BAM: A Literary Series with Greenlight Bookstore

From one of the world’s most beloved storytellers––#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust, Coraline) –– comes his first adult novel in eight years. Wondrous and imaginative, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lane 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.
