Description

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaiman returns to the territory of his masterpiece, American Gods (soon to be a Starz Original Series) to once again probe the dark recesses of the soul.

God is dead. Meet the kids.

Fat Charlie Nancy&;s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn&;t know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep&;about to make Fat Charlie&;s life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

&;Thrilling, spooky, and wondrous.&;

&;Denver Post

&;Awesomely inventive.&; When you take the free-fall plunge into a Neil Gaiman book, anything can happen and anything invariably does.&;

&;Entertainment Weekly

&;Delightful, funny and affecting.... A tall tale to end all tall tales.&;

&;Washington Post Book World

Description
"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 life. Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie things. Things like the tall, good-looking stranger who appears on Charlie's doorstep, who appears to be the brother he never knew. A brother as different from Charlie as night is from day, a brother who's 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" -- from publisher's web site.
