THE EXTRAORDINARY FIRST NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF STORYTELLING

‘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

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

‘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**
