Signed by Author; Spine tail and one bottom corner lightly bumped. Decorated endpapers are maps of the London Underground system. Signed by author on half title and inscribed -Laura- with Mind the Gap in a caption bubble leading off edge of page. Unclipped dust wrapper has faintest touch of edgewear. A very lovely copy indeed.; An unusual and sometimes dark novel of another world beneath London. Richard Mayhew helps a young woman and his life in London above inexplicably vanishes. Taxis don't stop for him, his bank cards don't work, and his landlord rents his flat to strangers. He is forced to exist in Neverwhere, "a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandonded subway stations. " The expression "Mind the Gap" will have a new meaning after reading this entertaining novel. The BBC miniseries of the same name was created by Gaiman and Lenny Henry. This more extensive novel contains scenes and story lines that were not included in the series due to budget and time constraints. While we enjoyed the series, we liked the book much better. Recommended, but not perhaps for the faint of heart. ; Images are actual copy on offer.
