In his first novel for adults in six years, the inimitable Neil Gaiman plumbs dark psychological depths with a tale that is part childhood memory, part nightmare and full of magic. After years away, the unnamed narrator returns to his hometown to attend a funeral and immediately begins recalling strange happenings from his childhood---things that could not possibly be true. But remember he does. He remembers the family that lived on the old farm at the end of the lane, and the girl who showed him a pond she called an ocean. And he remembers his family’s mysterious and frightening housekeeper, Ursula Monkton. As his memories continue to resurface, we are taken deeper and deeper into a realm of myth and legend so very close, yet so very different from our own world.
