Sunday Sentence: Neil Gaiman

Inspired by Fobbit author David Abrams at The Quivering Pen, a blog overflowing with good reading, is my Sunday Sentence. Presented without further commentary, here it is:

In my dreams I have used that language to heal the sick and to fly; once I dreamed I kept a perfect little bed-and-breakfast by the seaside, and to everyone who came to stay with me I would say, in that tongue, "Be whole," and they would become whole, not be broken people, not any longer, because I had spoken the language of shaping.

-- Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane (to be published Tuesday by William Morrow)

  1. I've been outlining a review this afternoon. It's a beautiful, thoroughly adult book about a time when a seven-year-old nearly lost his world. Fantastical and fantastic.
