Fat Charlie Nancy lebt in London, arbeitet als Buchhalter, ist nicht besonders beliebt, nicht besonders gutaussehend, nicht besonders witzig. Sein überschaubar spannendes Leben nimmt eine rasante Wendung als Charlies Bruder auftaucht. Spider ist das krasse Gegenteil zu Fat Charlie. Gutaussehend, witzig, überheblich, selbstverliebt, und er hat die göttlichen Fähigkeiten ihres gemeinsamen Vaters Anansi geerbt. Eine Brüdergeschichte, eine Göttergeschichte, eine Geschichte über Träume und Märchen, voller schräger Wendungen und ungeheuerlichen Begebenheiten. Und eine Geschichte über Familienbande, Freundschaft und Liebe.

Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text. A modern masterpiece from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Washington Post) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is the story of Shadow—released from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accident—who gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster, Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadow’s dark and strange road trip, one that introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. For, beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and Shadow is standing squarely in its path. “Pointed, occasionally comic, often scary, consistently moving and provocative….American Gods is strewn with secrets and magical visions.”—USA Today “Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive.”—George R. R. Martin
