Anansi Boys

I didn't go to the library yesterday--I finished rereading Anansi Boys, by Neil Gaiman, instead.

It's brilliant.

I'll try to post some bits here just to give everyone an idea of the flavor of the writing & I'll add: It's got lots of good bits, but it isn't just good bits, it's a really good book. I like most of what Gaiman has written, and I think even the stuff I don't like is very well done, but I think this is his best so far.

*Yes, he's also the one who wrote "Chivalry," the short story that begins "Mrs. Whitaker found the Holy Grail; it was under a fur coat."
