Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author Neil Gaiman's collection of extraordinary short stories featuring How to Talk to Girls at Parties, now a major film starring Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp.

From the author American Gods, now a major TV series for Amazon Prime Video, Fragile Things shows one of the world's most gifted storytellers at the height of his powers.

Let me tell you stories of the months of the year, of ghosts and heartbreak, of dread and desire. Or after-hours drinking and unanswered phones, of good deeds and bad days, of trusting wolves and how to talk to girls at parties.

There are stories within stories, whispered in the quiet of the night, shouted above the roar of the day, and played out between lovers and enemies, strangers and friends. But all, all are fragile things made of just 26 letters arranged and rearranged to form tales and imaginings which will dazzle your senses, haunt your imagination and move you to the very depths of your soul.

Press Reviews

  • <i>Sun Herald</i>
    'Predominantly dark, the stories are occasionally whimsical and satirical, and at times humorous, but the book's underlying theme is fragility and how people, dreams and hearts are so easily broken'
  • <i>Kirkus Reviews</i>
    'The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills.'
  • <i>Publishers Weekly</i>
    'Gaiman has a deft touch for suprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments'
  • Susanna Clarke
    'Immensely entertaining ... Combines the anarchy of Douglas Adams with a Wodehousian generosity of spirit'
