Product description

Review

"A prodigiously imaginative collection . . . The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explore the mysteries of artistic inspiration."--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice

"[Gaiman] is a one-man story engine. . . . FRAGILE THINGS is a delightful compendium . . . [Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure."--Washington Post Book World

"Strange, or sweet, or eerie, or heartfelt stories . . . wonderfully peculiar . . . Gaiman relishes the sacred act of telling stories."--Entertainment Weekly

"The tales of FRAGILE THINGS are nibbles and bits of Gaiman's immensely satisfying inner landscape. They are fiercely playful and very grim, wisps of whimsy and wonder buoyed by the happy heart of a tragic poet."--USA Today

"A powerful and oddly unified collection, a perfect introduction to Gaiman's work for new readers and a thrilling reminder to his long-time fans . . . [T]he shorter prose form allows Gaiman a greater freedom of whimsy and provocation than even his graphic work, with stunning results."--Toronto Star

"Those with a taste for inventive idiosyncracy will find themselves fully rewarded."--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"One delight after another."--Booklist (starred review)

"Lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the chills."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Charming, at times creepy, and good fun . . . [W]ell-worth adding to any collection; highly recommended."--Library Journal

"FRAGILE THINGS is a delightful compendium...[Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure."--Washington Post Book World --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
