If you are to survive, you must believe.
Shadow Moon has served his time. But hours before his release from prison, his beloved wife is killed in a freak accident. Dazed, he boards a plane home where he meets the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who professes both to know Shadow and to be king of America.
Together they embark on a profoundly strange road trip across the USA, encountering a kaleidoscopic cast of characters along the way. Yet all around them a storm threatens to break. The war has already begun, an epic struggle for the very soul of America, and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.
A fantastic novel... runs as precisely as clockwork, but reads as smoothly as silk or warm chocolate - The Times on AMERICAN GODSGaiman hardwires his comedy of misrule with a crackpot energy that, when successfully channelled, lights up the imagination - The Sunday Times on ANANSI BOYSPossibly Gaiman's most lyrical, scary and beautiful work yet. It's a tale about childhood for grown-ups, a fantasy rooted in the darkest corners of reality - Independent on Sunday on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANEGaiman has written a book that reads like a half-remembered fairy-tale from childhood. It has the easy flow of a story already heard, deeply known, and slots perfectly into the canon of British magical fiction - New Statesman
