God is dead. Meet the kids.
When Fat Charlie's dad named something, it stuck. Like
calling Fat Charlie "Fat Charlie." Even now, twenty years
later, Charlie Nancy can't shake that name, one of the many
embarrassing "gifts" his father bestowed -- before he
dropped dead on a karaoke stage and ruined Fat Charlie's
Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie things. Things like the tall,
good-looking stranger who appears on Charlie's doorstep,
appears to be the brother he never knew. A brother as
different from Charlie as night is from day, a brother
going to show Charlie how to lighten up and have a little
fun... just like Dear Old Dad. And all of a sudden, life
starts getting very interesting for Fat Charlie.
Because, you see, Charlie's dad wasn't just any dad. He was
Anansi, a trickster god, the spider-god. Anansi is the
spirit of rebellion, able to overturn the social order,
create wealth out of thin air, and baffle the devil. Some
said he could cheat even Death himself.
Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in
masterful New York Times bestseller, American
Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of
dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth
that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and
fiercely funny -- a true wonder of a novel that confirms
Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a
treasure-house of story, and we are lucky to have him."
