Textul de pe ultima copertă

A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night . . .
Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams—and nightmares . . .
In a Hugo Award–winning story, a great detective must solve a most unsettling royal murder in a strangely altered Victorian England . . .
These marvelous creations and more showcase the unparalleled invention and storytelling brilliance—and the terrifyingly dark and entertaining wit—of the incomparable Neil Gaiman. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most original writers of our time.


“A prodigiously imaginative collection...The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explore the mysteries of artistic inspiration.”
“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.”
“Charming, at times creepy, and good fun. . . . Well-worth adding to any collection; highly recommended.”
“Strange, or sweet, or eerie, or heartfelt stories . . . wonderfully peculiar . . . Gaiman relishes the sacred act of telling stories.”
“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.”
“Those with a taste for inventive idiosyncracy will find themselves fully rewarded.”
“One delight after another.”
“Lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the chills.”
“FRAGILE THINGS is a delightful compendium...[Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure.”
“Fiercely playful and very grim, wisps of whimsy and wonder buoyed by the happy heart of a tragic poet.”
“Readers will be reminded most in these stories of that master craftsman...Ray Bradbury...Gothic tales of high caliber.”
