The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman (available June 18)

So THIS IS NEIL GAIMAN’S FIRST FICTION NOVEL SINCE 2005’s ANANSI BOYS! Do you even care what it’s about? Nor do we. Here’s some of what we know: the book’s narrator is a socially-awkward geek-in-training who, with the help of three old ladies and one 11 year-old girl down the block, tries to escape the darkness around and within him. Gaiman has said that this is his most personal work, which only makes us wanna read it more! Get here already, June 18!
