Neil Gaiman's extraordinary Fragile Things, from the bestselling author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods, reveals one of the world's most gifted storytellers at the height of his powers, and harnesses the Gothic power of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber to the storytelling genius of Stephen King. 'The collections also boasts lush prose . . . and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories' Kirkus Reviews

The distinctive genius of Neil Gaiman has been championed by writers as diverse as Norman Mailer and Stephen King. With THE SANDMAN Neil Gaiman created one of the most sophisticated, intelligent and influential graphic novel series of our time. Now Gaiman has produced FRAGILE THINGS, his second collection of short fiction. These stories will dazzle your senses, haunt your imagination and move you to the very depths of your soul.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Predominantly dark, the stories are occasionally whimsical and satirical, and at times humorous, but the book's underlying theme is fragility and how people, dreams and hearts are so easily broken' * Sun Herald *
'The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills.' * Kirkus Reviews *
'Gaiman has a deft touch for suprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments' * Publishers Weekly *
'Immensely entertaining ... Combines the anarchy of Douglas Adams with a Wodehousian generosity of spirit' * Susanna Clarke *

“Great book”

The only problem with it, was that it ended. i could go on for ever reading Gaiman's stories.
It is great for a busy life style, because some of the stories are short enough for you to read during a break, and... More
