Newberry in the Graveyard

January 26, 2009

Neil Gaiman’s beautiful and unclassifiable homage to Kipling, The Graveyard Book, has just won the 2008 Newberry Award. Gaiman, who is doing press right now for the upcoming film of his other creepy children’s book Coraline, writes a pretty funny blog entry about being told he’d won.

I love Neil Gaiman. My wife says I have a man-crush on him. I refuse to ennoble that with a reply. You should read The Graveyard Book.

    Did you know you can follow him on Twitter? I haven’t read any of his books yet, but after seeing him on your blog and on twitter, I started following him. His posts are very funny.

    I’ve never done Twitter. I know it’s inevitable. Maybe I’ll start with Gaiman.

    Yep, that was a good description of the wow moment. Very funny and candid.

    So you’re aloud a little bromance. Live it up.
