HE’S EVEN GOT BOOKS STACKED ON THE CHAIR.
I want. I want with a burning, passionate, delirious desire. Right now, I’ve only got about 20 feet of books…so maybe I could possibly fill up half of one of his rows. Plus I haven’t even read all of mine. Neil Gaiman is so well-read it’s baffling. I read the First Book of the Faerie Queen this year, and it blew my mind to finally realize all the allusions to it in Stardust. Gaiman read a medieval middle-English text and then drew on it to write an insanely popular novel-turned-movie. This is why this man is my greatest literary inspiration. Gaiman and Shakespeare. The Brits know what they’re doing.
