Neil Gaiman talks about 'The Sandman'

This is tonight - don't forget!

The Guardian events team have announced (here) an evening with Neil Gaiman talking about The Sandman

Monday 5th December 2022, 8-9pm GMT - tickers are £7 / £12 / £18

Neil Gaiman joins the next Guardian Live Book Club to talk about his New York Times bestselling comic book series, The Sandman.

First published in 1989 and covering 75 volumes, The Sandman follows Morpheus, one of seven immortal siblings who embody the natural forces: Death, Desire, Destiny, Delerium, Destruction and – in Morpheus’s case – Dream. Ageless, anthropomorphic and metaphysical, Morpheus occupies a fantastical world not too far from our own – a world in which chaos reigns and morality is always open to interpretation.

In August this year, 30 years on from the publication of the first volume, Netflix released a highly anticipated adaptation of The Sandman – an engrossing, lavish production starring Tom Sturridge, Jenna Coleman and Gwendoline Christie. It has received critical acclaim for its raw emotional depth, its intricately timeless storytelling, and its examinations of gender, sexuality and racial diversity.

Gaiman is the creator of over 30 books for adults and children, including Coraline and Stardust, as well as Good Omens, which he wrote with Terry Pratchett. He will join former Guardian books reporter Alison Flood to talk about his inspirations and the creative process behind the series that made him an icon.
