    CA – An Evening with Neil Gaiman

    Press Release:

    The Booksmith and Berkeley Arts & Letters Present An Evening with NEIL GAIMAN Celebrating the Tenth Anniversary of American Gods on June 27, 2011 at 7:30 pm.

    Tickets $12, available at Brown Paper Tickets online, or 800-838-3006, and at The Booksmith on Haight Street in San Francisco

    “Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose.If you have enjoyed John Crowley’s Little, Big or Stephen King’s The Stand or the urbane horror fiction of Jonathan Carrollthen American Gods arrives just in time.”  — Washington Post

    “Dark fun, and nourishing to the soul.” — Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

    It has been a decade since #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book) rocked the literary world with American Gods – his breathtaking tale of the war on Earth between old gods and new. For those who have yet to experience Gaiman’s bestselling tour de force — a novel USA Today called “a powerful, searing force that makes readers confront what is real and what is not” — and for those eager to enter this astonishing world again, comes the Author’s Preferred Text 10th Anniversary Edition. Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and Bram Stoker Awards, with a special introduction by the author, this is American Gods as Neil Gaiman always meant it to be.

    Purchasing your copy of American Gods, The Tenth Anniversary Edition ahead of time guarantees a signed copy. This new edition is offered at a 20% discount; price includes applicable state sales tax. (Unsigned copies will also be for sale at the event.)

    You may purchase a copy in advance via Brown Paper Tickets, or at The Booksmith in person, by phone (415-863-8688), online, or by email (orders@booksmith.com). Your printed receipt is your voucher, and may be redeemed immediately before the event at check-in. You must present your ticket voucher at the time of pickup. Please do not bring books purchased elsewhere.

    ABOUT WILSON: Meet Wilson, an opinionated middle-aged loner who loves his dog and quite possibly no one else. In an ongoing quest to find human connection, he badgers friend and stranger alike into a series of one-sided conversations, punctuating his own lofty discursions with a brutally honest, self-negating sense of humor. After his father dies, Wilson, now irrevocably alone, sets out to find his ex-wife with the hope of rekindling their long-dead relationship, and discovers he has a teenage daughter, born after the marriage ended and given up for adoption. Wilson eventually forces all three to reconnect as a family – a doomed mission that will surely, inevitably backfire.
