Michael Sheen to Read ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’

Actor Michael Sheen has signed on to read Neil Gaiman’s newly released novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

This reading will air in July on UK’s Radio 4′s  ”Book at Bedtime” show. In an interview with RadioTimes, producer Heather Larmour explained:

We wanted somebody who could capture the intimate tone of the narrator as well as the different voices involved.
