An AudioFile Best Audiobook of the Year for 2014
You ask me if I can forgive myself?
I can forgive myself …
And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novelette—a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure.
The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the collection Stories: All New Tales. In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sell-out crowd—Gaiman read his tale live as artist Eddie Campbell’s magnificent artwork was presented, scene by scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.
Neil Gaiman has long been one of the top writers in modern comics, and he has also penned many books for readers of all ages, including American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline, and M Is for Magic. He is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top ten living postmodern writers, and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama. He has written multiple New York Times bestselling books and is a Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus Award-winner. He has also worked in support of First Amendment rights and was awarded the Defender of Liberty Award in August 1997 by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for his efforts. Born and raised in England, Neil now lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has somehow reached his fifties and tends to always need a haircut.
