it was amazing

One of the finest by the pen of master fabulist Neil Gaiman, this time, set in a bygone Japan evocative of the Heian period. In a novella format with profuse and lush illustrations by the famed Yoshitaka Amano, this is as much Amano's book as it is Gaiman's. There has been some controversy as to the story--is it original to Neil Gaiman, or did he revise it from various sources on Japanese fairy tales? Whatever the case is, the story of the kitsune and the monk is a magical, gripping love story and fairy tale, abounding with evil sorcery and whimsical gods. The appearance of the King of All-Night's Dreaming with a startling device in the book is all the more reason to buy, read, and own this book. Highly recommended! One of the best and most memorable of Sandman tales.
