'Immensely entertaining . . . combines the anarchy of Douglas Adams with a Wodehousian generosity of spirit' Susanna Clarke'Extraordinary, complicated, hilarious, melancholy and terrifying' Independent---Let me tell you a story. No, wait. One's not enough. I'll begin again . . .

Let me tell you stories of the months of the year, of ghosts and heartbreak, of dread and desire. Or after-hours drinking and unanswered phones, of good deeds and bad days, of trusting wolves and how to talk to girls. There are stories within stories, whispered in the quiet of the night, shouted above the roar of the day, and played out between lovers and enemies, strangers and friends. But all, all are fragile things made of just twenty-six letters arranged and rearranged to form tales and imaginings. NEIL GAIMAN. WITH STORIES COME POSSIBILITIES.
