Meet legendary storyteller Neil Gaiman at his first public event for The Ocean at the End of the Lane a brilliantly imaginative and poignant fable, praised as a novel "about memory and magic and the darkness that lives without and within".

But there is hope at the end of the lane, where three mysterious women claim that their duck pond is an ocean.
