Neil Gaiman on Gothic 2014

United Kingdom

There's a joyous precision as Neil Gaiman hits his stride capturing the essence of Gothic. For him, the "big strange gloomy books" at its origins share a purity that informs everything. His typical image – "a beautiful young lady, preferably wearing nothing but a nightie, running away from an old dark house" – is just the starting point for a poetic and passionate avowal of the genre.
