Neil Gaiman writes an imaginative book sparked by the Anansi tales. Fat Charlie learns that his father -- who dropped dead on a karaoke stage surrounded by blonde tourists -- was actually a God. He finds out he has a brother he never knew about who inherited all the God gifts. Charlie tells a spider to send a message to his brother to drop by sometime. What will happen when Charlie's fiancee Rosie meets Spider? Why is Rosie's mom suddenly in favor of the marriage? And where does Daisy fit into all this? Why (and who) sent his brother away in the first place?
