Amer­i­can Gods Neil Gaim an, 2001

SFX - - 20 Greatest Books -

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.
