The stunningly original and brilliant first novel from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman.
Now a six part radio dramatisation on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of.
A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet.
Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London.
A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.
There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining...And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.
