- Kurzbeschreibung<p>First published in 2001, <em>American Gods</em> became an instant classic&8212;an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of <em>American Gods</em> in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author&8217;s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.</p><p><em>A storm is coming . . . </em></p><p>Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.</p><p>But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow&8217;s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.</p><p>Life as Wednesday&8217;s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined&8212;it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing&8212;an epic war for the very soul of America&8212;and that he is standing squarely in its path.</p><p>Relevant and prescient, <em>American Gods</em> has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of &8220;mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose&8221; (Michael Dirda, <em>Washington Post Book World</em>) and as a modern phantasmagoria that &8220;distills the essence of America&8221; (<em>Seattle Post-Intelligencer</em>). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.</p>
