21 - The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - Meaningful Endings and the Truth. 

Truth. It's one of the most important aspects of story - especially of stories that are fantastical. In this episode, I explore how Gaiman created a truthful, meaningful, and emotional resonant ending to his Hugo and Newberry award-winning novel: The Graveyard Book. (Includes bonus singing from yours truly) Enjoy!
