Review quote

'Predominantly dark, the stories are occasionally whimsical and satirical, and at times humorous, but the book's underlying theme is fragility and how people, dreams and hearts are so easily broken' Sun Herald 'The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills.' Kirkus Reviews 'Gaiman has a deft touch for suprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments' Publishers Weekly 'Immensely entertaining ... Combines the anarchy of Douglas Adams with a Wodehousian generosity of spirit' Susanna Clarke
