Summary

A Neverwhere short story from one of the brightest, most brilliant writers of our generation - the Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling author of the award-winning The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

The coat. It was elegant. It was beautiful. It was so close that he could have reached out and touched it.

And it was unquestionably his.

Excellent

Really enjoyed this short novella. Neverwhere is one of my all time favourite books and this story is all about what happened to the Marquis in between events in the book. I’m so pleased the author wrote this as a separate story. The Marquis definitely deserves his own book. Recommended.

An absolute joy!

The Marquis de Carabass has only recently recovered from a relatively terminal case of death.
On his recovery he finds himself coatless and soon at the mercy of The Elephant (and Castle).
He takes a reasonably direct route through London Below to recover his precious garment - beware The Mushroom and the Shepherds of Shepherds’ Bush... I loved Neverwhere, it is one of my favourite Gaiman tales and this short addition is a delight - the Marquis was such a fabulous character, whom I always pictured as somewhat fringe in nature...and to get some more of his character was a joy!
