Fat Charlie is just an everyday guy with an embarrassing father whom he'd rather just forget. After hearing the news of his father's (embarrassing) death, Fat Charlie meets the brother he never knew he had, and finds out why no one ever forgets their father. An excellent spin-off of sorts from "American Gods", this book delves deeper into the myth and magic of Anansi, the Spider God. Funny and a little scary, this book will be treasured by Neil Gaiman fans of all ages.
