Description

THE EXTRAORDINARY FIRST NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF STORYTELLING

ACCLAIMED BBC RADIO 4 DRAMATISATION WITH ALL-STAR CAST INCLUDING JAMES MCAVOY, NATALIE DORMER, DAVID HAREWOOD, SOPHIE OKONEDO AND BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

'Prose that dances and dazzles . . . Gaiman describes the indescribable' SUSANNA CLARKE

'It's virtually impossible to read more than ten words by Neil Gaiman and not wish he would tell you the rest of the story' OBSERVER

'Much too clever to be caught in the net of a single interpretation' PHILIP PULLMAN

---

'I love doors. Anything that leads to possibilities' NEIL GAIMAN

---

Under the streets of London lies a world most people could never dream of.

When Richard Mayhew stops to help a girl he finds bleeding in the street, his unremarkable life changes in an instant.

This act of kindness leads him to a place filled with murderers and angels, pale girls in black velvet, a Beast in a labyrinth and an Earl who holds Court in a tube train. It is strangely familiar yet utterly bizarre.

Here is London Below, the city of people who have fallen between the cracks. And for Richard Mayhew, it's just the beginning.

NEIL GAIMAN.
WITH STORIES COME POSSIBILITIES.

---

**Includes an introduction to the author's preferred text, How the Marquis Got His Coat Back short story, reading-group discussion questions, an 'Altogether Different Prologue' and an interview with Neil Gaiman**

Our customer reviews

I got this book on a recommendation from a good friend and it did not disappoint! It had everything to take the reader from the everyday world into a land that is completely enchanting and tantalisingly dark without coming across as ridiculous or mind boggling. It's too easy to come to love, loathe or even fear the characters as they are all so well written that they may as well be standing in front of you reciting their lines! You are brought through the book hand in hand with Door, through every high and every low and it is all written in a way that reads so seamlessly that hours may pass and the book will still be in your hands. It's a challenge to leave it down.show more
