Stardust: The Gift Editionby Neil Gaiman
Synopses & Reviews
Among the wondrous, beautiful, and strange literary offspring conceived by Sandman creator, multi-award winner, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (Anasi Boys, Neverwhere, American Gods, Coraline, The Graveyard Book), his magical 1997 fantasy novel, Stardust, remains a top favorite.
An enchanting adult fairy tale about a young man who travels beyond the boundaries of his small village to find a fallen star and win the heart of the woman he loves — the basis for the hit motion picture starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Sienna Miller, Claire Danes, and Robert DeNiro — Gaiman's glorious fable is now available in a special keepsake edition. Here is a gift of Stardust — beautifully packaged, with a special new introduction by the author — that every Neil Gaiman devotee will want to receive.
“A twisting, wondrous tale full of magic that only Neil Gaiman could have written.” Chicago Tribune
“Strange...marvelous...Stardust takes us back to a time when the world was more magical, and, real or not, that world is a charming place.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Thrilling...Stardust reads like a mix between L. Frank Baum, the Brothers Grimm, and a Tim Burton movie script.” Dallas Morning News
“[A] tale about love, danger, friendship, magic, and adventure...a short novel that delivers big-time satisfaction.” Detroit Free Press
“A wonderful novel....A pleasure to read.” Denver Post
“Eminently readable — a charming piece of work.” Washington Post Book World
“Sparkling, fresh, and charming. Superb.” Booklist
“The multitalented author of The Sandman graphic novels and last year's Neverwhere charms again, with a deftly written fantasy adventure tale set in Victorian England and enriched by familiar folk materials.” Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“Beautiful, memorable....A book full of marvels.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“His finest work yet....Sometimes sparse, sometimes witty, often lyrical...prose as smooth as 12-year-old scotch.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Delightful...a strange yet wonderful story.” Grand Rapids Press
“Marvelous adventures...magical and fun.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
This special gift edition will be beautifully packaged in a smaller trim size with a one-piece fine cloth case, a gold-stamped cover, and a whimsical interior design, featuring a frontispiece illustration and line chapter opener ornamentation by noted artist Charles Vess. It will also contain an introductory note by Neil Gaiman.
Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria Forester — even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that stone barrier, Tristran learns, lies Faerie... and the most exhilarating adventure of the young man's life.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a tale of the dark and miraculous — a quest for true love and the utterly impossible.
