The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction

By Neil Gaiman

An enthralling collection of nonfiction essays on a myriad of topics--from art and artists to dreams, myths, and memories--observed in #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's probing, amusing, and distinctive style.

An inquisitive observer, thoughtful commentator, and assiduous craftsman, Neil Gaiman has long been celebrated for the sharp intellect and startling imagination that informs his bestselling fiction. Now, The View from the Cheap Seats brings together for the first time ever more than sixty pieces of his outstanding nonfiction. Analytical yet playful, erudite yet accessible, this cornucopia explores a broad range of interests and topics, including (but not limited to): authors past and present; music; storytelling; comics; bookshops; travel; fairy tales; America; inspiration; libraries; ghosts; and the title piece, at turns touching and self-deprecating, which recounts the author's experiences at the 2010 Academy Awards in Hollywood.

Insightful, incisive, witty, and wise, The View from the Cheap Seats explores the issues and subjects that matter most to Neil Gaiman--offering a glimpse into the head and heart of one of the most acclaimed, beloved, and influential artists of our time.



    REVIEW QUOTES
Gaiman s prose reveals the relaxed intimacy of a cherished dinner partner and never loses sight of the big picture. . . . Highly recommended for readers of Gaiman s work, specifically, and sf and fantasy generally, as well as those interested in cultural criticism and the art and craft of writing. --Library Journal (starred review) on THE VIEW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS"
Full of devotion and erudition, this is also a glorious love-letter to reading, to writing, to dreaming, to an entire genre. --Junot D?az, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO"
