American Gods is like a fast run downhill through a maze—both exhilarating and twisted. In it, Gaiman introduces a world where the dead past is all too alive, where gods struggle to keep a toehold on existence, and where reality's backstage is only a carousel ride away.

About the Author

Neil Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books for readers of all ages, and the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the Shirley Jackson Award and the Locus Award for Best Novelette for his story "The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains." Originally from England, he now lives in America.


Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose — American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages.

Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

A fascinating tale . . . by turns thoughtful, hilarious, disturbing, uplifting, horrifying and enjoyable — and sometimes all at once, in a curious sort of way. Those who are familiar with Gaiman's earlier work will find a satisfying yarn by a familiar master storyteller. Those who are meeting him for the first time may be surprised at just how good he is.
