Neil Gaiman has legions of devoted readers around the world for a very good reason: he tells incredible stories with beautiful, funny, and moving prose. Some of his most pleasing sentences can be found in his debut novel, Neverwhere. Most recently, the restored, Author’s Preferred Text of Neverwhere was published in hardcover. We combed through this definitive edition (quite a wonderful way to spend the day, in fact) to find some of our favorite lines. Here they are. You may grab the images for your Facebook or Instagram feeds, and we certainly hope you’ll add in your favorite bits of Gaiman prose in the comments section, whether they are from Neverwhere, or one of his other novels like American Gods or The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
