The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman (illustr. by Eddie Campbell)

You ask me if I can forgive myself?  I can forgive myself…

And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure.

This full-colour illustrated book was born of a unique collaboration between Sunday Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman and renowned artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life the characters and landscape of Gaiman’s award-winning story.

In this volume, the talents and vision of two great creative geniuses come together in a glorious explosion of colour and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love.

…for many things.  For where I left him.  For what I did.

The text of The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the anthology Stories: All New Tales (ISBN 9780755336609) – Headline Publishing Group, Headline Review, 15 June 2010.
