Central Michigan University professor Joe Sommers has written a new book of interviews with celebrated author
Gaiman began his career as a journalist and went on to write dozens of graphic novels, collections of short stories, and books for children and adults. Several have been adapted for film and television, including “Coraline” and “American Gods.” His work has received a number of awards, including the Newbery, Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy awards.
“Conversations with Neil Gaiman,” is a curated collection of interviews the author has given over many decades, including his first with the BBC at age 7. It is the first of two books Sommers will release about Gaiman. His second book, “The Artistry of Neil Gaiman,” is expected in 2019.
This fall, Sommers also will teach a course based on Gaiman’s work called Dream a Little Dream with Me: The Fantasy Landscapes of Neil Gaiman.
