a little magic in your step

I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s a fan of Neil Gaiman ’round Dublin parts. Ever since I started reading the first Sandman comic, Preludes and Nocturnes, in a fast-moving Chrysler on the California 5 hurtling towards LA in bright desert heat, I’ve followed his work consistently. Actually, I read his early novel Neverwhere (which has since been riffed on in a pretty good comic) long before I knew who he was as a cult hero, but it was Sandman that made me fall in love with his deft, eloquent world-building.

Anwyay, he’s just wrapped up his tour to promote his new work, Fragile Things (sadly without a stop in Dublin). But if you know his works, you’ll be interested that his children’s book Coraline has been made into a puppet production that’s currently showing at the Projects Art Centre in Temple Bar. (It is also, of course, a lovely book and also a movie.) While it’s intended for children, as with all of Neil’s works there’s certainly plenty of wonderful storytelling aimed at adults too. It will be on through the 28th of October–I’m going to go this weekend, and I just can’t wait.
