American Gods Neil Gaim an, 2001
Neil Gaiman has long been concerned with the nature of gods. How do they come into being? What are they like? How do the actions and attitudes of humankind affect them? As its title suggests, these themes are explicit in American Gods, a novel that imagines a clash between old and new deities, and also serves as an eerie exploration of the 21st- century American psyche. To be read in conjunction with Terry Pratchett’s Small Gods and the novel the two men wrote together, Good Omens.
