An enthralling collection of nonfiction pieces on myriad topics--from art and artists to dreams, myths, and memories to comics, films, and literature--observed in award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's probing, amusing, and distinctive style.

As Neil explains, "This book is not 'the complete nonfiction of Neil Gaiman.' It is, instead, a motley bunch of speeches and articles, introductions and essays. Some of them are serious and some of them are frivolous and some of them are earnest and some of them I wrote to try and make people listen."

Illuminating and incisive, witty and wise, The View from the Cheap Seats explores some of the issues, subjects, and people that matter most to Neil Gaiman--and offers a unique glimpse into the mind of one of the most beloved and influential writers of our time.

display_description "The View from the Cheap Seats brings together... more than sixty pieces of his outstanding nonfiction. Analytical yet playful, erudite yet accessible, this cornucopia explores a broad range of interests and topics, including (but not limited to): authors past and present; music; storytelling; comics; bookshops; travel; fairy tales; America; inspiration; libraries; ghosts; and the title piece, at turns touching and self-deprecating, which recounts the author's experiences at the 2010 Academy Awards in Hollywood."--
