Product Description: A brilliantly imaginative and poignant fairy tale from the modern master of wonder and terror, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is Neil Gaiman's first new novel for adults since his #1 New York Times bestseller Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman makes the impossible all too real in this bewitching and harrowing tale of mystery and survival, memory, and magic.
When he was seven years old, he found himself in unimaginable danger--from inside his family, and from without. His only hope is the girl who lives a the end of the lane. She says her duck pond is an ocean. She may be telling the truth. After all, her grandmother remembers the Big Bang.
