Since it was first published, American Gods became an
instant classic. Now discover the mystery and magic of American
Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and
expanded with the author''s preferred text, this commemorative
volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one,
the only, Neil Gaiman.
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.
But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow''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 a rogue, Wednesday seems to
know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.
Life as Wednesday''s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far
more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined-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.
