Anansi Boys

This is the latest by Neil Gaiman, who is well-known in the comics world for his Sandman series. As it turns out, though, he does pretty well in conventional fiction, too. Anansi Boys is the story of two sons of Anansi, a mischievous Caribbean deity. The narrative is infused with mythology and African folklore, but the real meat of the story is the relationship between the two brothers. Gaiman tells the story in a light, humorous tone that goes well with the plot.
