American Gods

American Gods - Neil Gaiman A reread of a book I hadn't read in about ten years. I loved it then, and I loved it now too; definitely my favorite just-prose Neil Gaiman that I've read. It's not without its flaws -- and it's tackling a complex issue laden with lots of historical and cultural baggage, and doing so imperfectly -- but still, there are passages that are purely numinous, and that make me want to write like that someday. And I enjoy Shadow a lot.
