Peter Straub's six favorite books

Peter Straub is an award-winning writer of horror fiction. His new book, Interior Darkness, is a story collection drawn from his 45-year career. One of Straub's six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

For me, this is Gaiman's most successful foray into adult fiction, though delivered with the emotional directness of Stardust and Coraline. An unnamed narrator explores the rural Sussex of his childhood, with unsettling results.
