    Here s what the introduction says about Fragile Things It seemed like a fine title for a book of short stories There are so many fragile things, after all People break so easily, and so do dreams and heartsIt all feels like a desperate attempt to release a collection of unrelated stories into the world They are all very unique and individual with a title that could be applie

    We owe it to each other to tell stories For years I ve heard the name Neil Gaiman passed about, weighted with heavy praise, and have always promised myself to read him Earlier this fall, after hearing him speak on NPR, I sat down with a copy of Coraline, and hungrily read it in one sitting Despite the novel being intended for an audience much greener than I, I couldn t help but b
