Neil Gaiman is a modern myth maker. He’s work mixes together old traditions and English ways into an untraditional family in his latest novel. His first adult story in around eight years and his talent has by no means diminished. In Ocean at the End of the Lane, our narrator thinks back to an event that happened over forty years ago. You can’t help but doubt the story, and yet you want it to be true. Full of twists and turns that constantly shock and amaze, it’s a perfectly formed tale.
