New Gaiman for Headline
08.10.12 | Charlotte Williams
Headline has acquired a new adult novel by bestselling author Neil Gaiman.
Managing director Jane Morpeth bought UK rights for The Ocean at the End of the Lane from Merrilee Heifetz and Angharad Kowal at Writers' House.
Gaiman described the book as "a novel of childhood and memory. It's a story of magic, about the power of stories and how we face the darkness inside each of us. It's about fear, and love, and death, and families. But, fundamentally, I hope, at its heart, it's a novel about survival."
Morpeth said: "The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a truly wonderful novel from a genius storyteller, which is at once moving, magical and terrifying. We will be publishing it in July next year in hardback, e-book and audio and I can't wait for everyone else to have the opportunity to read and love it as much as I do."
