  • UT – An Evening with Neil Gaiman

    gaimanNeil Gaiman appears on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Eccles Center Main Stage!

    Press Release:

    Bestselling and award-winning author Neil Gaiman comes to the stage with decidedly more than an ability to spin a good yarn. He creates and he inspires. His work extends from fiction and comics to screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.

    Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books. His works for adults include Neverwhere (broadcast as a BBC radio adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch); Anansi Boys; Good Omens (with Terry Pratchett); and the short story collections Trigger Warning, Smoke and Mirrors, and Fragile Things.

    His most recent novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane , was described by The Guardian as “a book that summons both the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, and the complicated landscape of memory and for getting.” It too was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. Coraline was adapted as a musical by Stephin Merritt in 2009. Other works for younger readers include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish (illustrated by longtime collaborator Dave McKean); The Wolves in the Walls (made into an opera by the Scottish National Theatre); Odd and the Frost Giants (written for 2009’s World Book Day, illustrated by Brett Helquist); and The Dangerous Alphabet (illustrated by Gris Grimly).

    His most recent children’s book is Fortunately the Milk, another bestseller.

    Gaiman has appeared as himself on The Simpsons and an episode of Arthur, and has written for the hit television series Babylon 5.

    He has also penned screenplays for the original BBC TV series of Neverwhere; Dave McKean’s first feature film, Mirrormask, for the Jim Henson Company; and co-wrote (with Roger Avary) the script to Robert Zemeckis’s Beowulf. Other of Gaiman’s work has been adapted for film, television, and radio, including Stardust (starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer); Coraline (an Academy Award nominee and the BAFTA winner for Best Animated Film); Sandman (currently in development as a major motion picture); and American Gods (aforthcoming television series).

    NEIL GAIMAN

    Often Neil Gaiman’s work gets categorized as Dark Fantasy, because we love dividing and subdividing genres. But Neil’s work strains against such limitations, starting from his first major work in the U.S., The Sandman. He can’t even be limited as a writer, playing in as many different forms as he can – comics, short stories, poetry, novels, and screenplays have all sprung forth from his fertile imagination, yet his earliest writing was as a journalist, profiling the likes of Duran Duran and Douglas Adams. In recent years he has become a producer and a director, all while continually evolving as perhaps his most charming aspect: a true raconteur.

    If his own story must have a beginning, it was in Hampshire, U.K., though he currently lives in the U.S. For those early days he describes himself as “…a feral child who was raised in libraries.” Becoming a voracious reader himself, it seems destiny guided him to his role as “Prince of Stories” – the title of a critical retrospective of his work.

    Though he seeped into our consciousness with an ad in DC Comics declaiming “I will show you terror in a handful of dust,“ it was wonder, not terror, that dawned, as mythologies old and new were turned on their heads and woven into an original epic that he revisits from time to time. Neil awakened readers to things we must have always known, but somehow we needed him to give us the words.

    In collaboration with Terry Pratchett, he offered us Good Omens. He wrote of Fragile Things and American Gods with equal weight; after all, he made us realize they are the same.

    And he inspires wonder for all ages. While he has taken adults to he reminds young and old to seek magic in Stardust. For the very young, he taught The Dangerous Alphabet and remembered The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish.

    Neil’s work gracefully straddles the media. Neverwhere began as a BBC teleplay before becoming a novel and a graphic novel, and this year has been re-imagined as a radio drama. Coraline has become both a stop-motion animated film and a stage musical, while The Wolves in the Walls expanded into an opera. At the request of the Jim Henson Company, Neil co-created the film Mirrormask, directed by his frequent collaborator, artist Dave McKean. (Their Mr. Punch has not yet left the page, but with Neil, it’s only a matter of time.)

    Perhaps fulfilling a dream of that feral child in the library, Neil even wrote an episode of Doctor Who in 2011, “The Doctor’s Wife.” There’s more, of course, including a bestselling novel in 2013, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but Neil is also busy in other media. Having turned producer for the film Stardust, he has also directed two short films himself, one starring his wife, musician Amanda Palmer.
