Newberry in the Graveyard
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.
