Some writers even do a bang-up job of reading other writers' work: modern master storyteller Neil Gaiman gave us a dose of that on Monday when we featured his recitation of Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky" from memory. Gaiman read to a full house at the New York Public Library , an institution known for its stimulating events, holiday-themed or otherwise. You can hear both Oldfield and Gaiman in the recording above. But perhaps the greatest gift of all came in the form of the latter's attire for his reading: not only did he go fully Victorian, he even went to the length of replicating the 19th-century literary superstar's own severe hair part and long goatee. Gaiman's reading will be added to our list of Free Audio Books. O Frabjous Day! Follow him on Twitter at colinmarshall or on Facebook.
