This month's meeting of the English Fiction Book Club will be held at Qatar National Library on 28th August. The urban fantasy novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman will be discussed.

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman's darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman's preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

This urban fantasy novel, a young man explores a semi-magical hidden city beneath London, populated by a bizarre cast of characters. A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that "draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton" (USA Today), Neverwhere is an "Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge" (Poppy Z. Brite), "that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune).

Copies of the book will be available at the User Services Desk.
