The View From The Cheap Seats

Author: Neil Gaiman

Publisher: Headline (2016)

'Literature does not occur in a vacuum. It cannot be a monologue. It has to be a conversation' Welcome to the conversation.

Of course, the real world continued to make up its own stories around him, and he has responded over the years with a wealth of ideas and introductions, dreams and speeches. Here 'we can meet the writer full on' (Stephen Fry) as he opens our minds to the people he admires and the things he believes might just mean something - and makes room for us to join the conversation too.
