There's a new post on Neil Gaiman's journal (a blog I highly recommend). He's reading his book that's about to come out, Blueberry Girl. I will only say two things. First, I want this book; even more, I would like to figure out how to save Neil's reading of the book. Second, if I knew someone with a young girl or pregnant with a girl, I would get them this book. It is that good. My eyes were welling up as I listened to the reading, and the art is stunning even on its own. But don't take my word for it. Go there, and see for yourself.
Once again, I am more than profoundly embarrassed that I didn't discover Neil Gaiman until this past fall's National Book Festival. I am so looking forward to savoring American Gods while in Hue ... where I will be just one week from today.
