Anansi Boys

by Neil Gaiman
£8.99   paperback  Headline Book Publishing (2006)

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman Fat Charlie Nancy is not having a good week. His estranged father recently dropped dead on a karaoke stage and has left Fat Charlie with much more than embarrassment.
 
Because, you see, Charlie has discovered that his dad wasn't just any dad. He was Anansi the trickster spider-god.
 
Anansi is the spirit of rebellion, able to overturn the social order, create wealth out of thin air, and even baffle the devil. No wonder Fat Charlie's life is about to be turned upside down.
 
Written by one of fiction's most audaciously original talents, Anansi Boys, is a kaleidoscope journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny. Neil Gaiman has given us a mythology for a modern age - complete with dark prophecy, family dysfunction, mystical deceptions, and killer birds.
 
Not to mention a lime.

"'Anansi Boys draws the reader, ever more wide-eyed and amazed, into a world both feather-light and chockablock with mortal danger."
(Peter Straub)
"Thoughtful, wise, spiritually challenging and incredibly funny... it's a treasure, every word.
(Manda Scott)
