Neil Gaiman interview: Ocean at the End of the Lane

By Sasha de Buyl
Neil Gaiman at EIBF

Last Sunday afternoon, Book Talk packed its bags and made its way over to the white-tented confines of Charlotte Square, for the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

While there, we had the chance to have a quick catch up with award winning author and storytelling behemoth, Neil Gaiman.

As we only had a few minutes, we chatted a little about Neil’s new book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and then asked him some serious hard hitting questions including ‘Do you have a favourite rodent?’ and ‘What is your favourite stop on the underground?’. Intrigued? Listen in to hear Neil’s answers!

The book Neil recommends but can't remember the title of is You Are What You Speak by Robert Lane Green.
