Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

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.

Neverwhere is the stunningly original and brilliant first novel from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman, with illustrations by Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell.

Tori Amos

Gaiman has a rich imagination… and an ability to tackle large themes.
