The most personal novel from one of the world's finest fantasists, this book is full of true things that never happened. Hearthbreaking, yet whimsical - not to be missed.
— Steven at Books Inc. in Palo Alto
A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home and is drawn to the farm at the end of the road where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl and her mother and grandmother. As he sits by the pond -behind the ramshackle old house, the unremembered past comes flooding back--a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.
A groundbreaking work as delicate as a butterfly's wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out.
