Description New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman speaks with Brooke Gladstone, co-host of WNYC Studios’ On the Media, for an evening of conversation marking the paperback release of his riveting collection of primeval stories, Norse Mythology. Gaiman’s contemporary fantasy novel American Gods won the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards, as did his young adult story, Coraline (which was adapted into a musical by Stephin Merritt in 2009). His groundbreaking Sandman comics were described by Stephen King as having turned graphic novels into art. An adventurous creator, Gaiman has scripted an episode of Doctor Who, written screenplays, poetry, journalism, and multimedia works. His books for adults include Neverwhere, Anansi Boys, and the short story collections Smoke and Mirrors and Fragile Things. Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane, written for adults and young adults, was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. Signed copies of Norse Mythology will be available for purchase.
