Fat Charlie Nancy never knew his dead dad was a god—Anansi the trickster. He never knew he had a brother either.

Now brother Spider is on his doorstep, about to make life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

It’s a meeting that will take Fat Charlie from his London home to Florida, the Caribbean, and the very beginning of the world itself. Or the end of the world, depending on which way you’re looking.

Neil could never have known that he was writing for a confused Jamaican kid who, without even knowing it, was still staggering from centuries of erasure of his own gods and monsters.” —MARLON JAMES

Critical Praise

“Funny and subversive, a comedy of ill-mannered gods and bad-hearted mortals . . . Gaiman’s mastery of language carries the reader through to a satisfying conclusion.” — USA Today

“Delightful, funny and affecting . . . A tall tale to end all tall tales.” — Washington Post

“Thrilling, spooky and wondrous.” — Denver Post

“A hybrid of folk tale and farce that freely partakes of the comic wealth in each, slipping effortlessly back and forth between them . . . Anansi Boys is Gaiman’s tribute to [Anansi’s] trickster spirit, as nimble and resourceful as his own imagination.” —
