BCB Fragile Things
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, an extraordinary collection of short fiction that showcases the storytelling genius that has made Gaiman one of today’s most beloved writers—one of ten classic Gaiman works repackaged with elegant original watercolor art by acclaimed artist Henry Sene Yee.
“A prodigiously imaginative collection.” —New York Times Book Review, Editor’s Choice
Fragile Things showcases the distinctive storytelling genius that has made Neil Gaiman one of the most admired literary artists of our time. The thirty-two gems of prose and verse in this astonishing collection stretch the imagination and engage the intellect even as they illuminate the vagaries of human experience. Whether he’s conjuring a mysterious traveling circus, exploring the rarefied tastes of an exclusive epicurean club, or visiting a strangely altered Victorian England, Gaiman reveals how the ordinary and the fantastical are transmutable and intertwined.
With breathtaking clarity, Fragile Things illumines Gaiman’s brilliance as well as his terrifyingly entertaining dark sense of humor. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, this volume is a gift of enchantments that will startle the senses and stir the soul.
