Sons of god: Darice Moore on Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys

Excellent review of Gaiman's new book.

"Neil Gaiman’s new novel Anansi Boys is set in the same universe as his 2001 novel American Gods, but where Gods is sprawling, taking on multiple mythologies and creating new ones, Boys is tightly focused. Here we have only one god to deal with, the spider god Anansi, and Gaiman takes advantage of the limited scope to thoroughly explore the ramifications of the trickster-storyteller through a cast of characters who are all, in different ways, finding their voices."
