Event Details

 Award-winning author Neil Gaiman will be joined by fine artist Elise Hurst for an unmissable evening, as they talk about their newly illustrated version of Gaiman’s novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Expelling thrill and fear, the book is a magical myth of a man who returns to his childhood home only to be faced with an unimaginable darkness of his past. With breathtaking intricacy, Gaiman explores what it means to be reconnected to our childhood memories by threads of magic and danger, enlivened by Hurst’s stunning pen-and-ink illustrations.

Gaiman is the creator of over 30 books for adults and children, including internationally-acclaimed bestsellers Coraline and Stardust, and American Gods. He wrote Good Omens with Terry Pratchett, which he recently adapted for a highly acclaimed TV miniseries. This new, beautifully illustrated version of The Ocean at the End of the Lane coincides with a National Theatre adaptation.

Hurst is a Melbourne-based illustrator, fine artist and author, specialising in children's books. She works in a vintage alternate reality, creating characters we feel we know and worlds we would like to inhabit.

Tickets for this event are £20 or £34 with a copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, signed exclusively for this event (RRP £20).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
