Neil Gaiman with Audrey Niffenegger (2011 event)
It’s ten years since the publication of the landmark American Gods, a book that brought Gaiman to international fame. One reviewer even lauded him thus: ‘Saying Neil Gaiman is a writer is like saying Da Vinci dabbled in the arts.’ Since then he’s won countless awards for his work in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genres as well as the Carnegie Medal for children’s literature. In this event, selected and chaired by Audrey Niffenegger, Neil Gaiman discussed the epic blend of Americana, myth and fantasy in his work. Filmed live at the 2011 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
