Newly updated and expanded with the authorâs preferred text.Â 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 âmystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic proseâ (Washington Post) and as a modern phantasmagoria that âdistills the essence of Americaâ (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is the story of Shadowâreleased from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accidentâwho gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster, Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadowâs 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 brewingâan epic war for the very soul of Americaâand Shadow is standing squarely in its path.
âPointed, occasionally comic, often scary, consistently moving and provocativeâ¦.American Gods is strewn with secrets and magical visions.ââUSA Today
âOriginal, engrossing, and endlessly inventive.ââGeorge R. R. Martin
