Best-selling author of short fiction Neil Gaiman, a Bard professor and the author of The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction (William Morrow, 2016), looks back on the real life topics that engaged him, including free speech, the nightmare of tweeting, and fiction as a gateway drug.

"Just because you are bored and sick of Disney princesses," Gaiman says, your child isn't. "Anything is essentially a gateway drug to reading."
