I covered this a couple of weeks back and with the on sale date approaching, publicity is really picking up steam. Here’s an update:
Time magazine ran a three-page profile on Neil the June 24th issue.
The Los Angeles Times also ran a profile that in the 6/13 edition. Click here to read it online. (Photo credit to Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times)
It’s a People Pick with a fantastic review:
Reading Gaiman’s new novel, his first for adults since 2005’s The Anansi Boys, is like listening to that rare friend whose dreams you actually want to hear about at breakfast. […] Gaiman’s at his fantasy-master best here – the struggle between a boy and a shape-shifter with ‘rotting-cloth eyes’ moves at a speedy, chilling clip. What distinguishes the book, though, is its evocation of the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, a time when magic seems as likely as any other answer and good stories help us through.”
