Hello once again--all you civilized celebrants of the literate world and connoisseurs of happy hours and minutes.
Herewith our August reading selection. It's a bit long, so you might want to get started sooner rather than later.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman 624 pages; originally published 2001
"A master of inventive fiction, Neil Gaiman delves into the murky depths where reality and imagination meet. Now in American Gods, he works his literary magic to extraordinary results." "Shadow dreamed of nothing but leaving prison and starting a new life. But the day before his release, his wife and best friend are killed in an accident. On the plane home to the funeral, he meets Mr. Wednesday—a beguiling stranger who seems to know everything about him. … For beneath the placid surface of everyday life a war is being fought—and the prize is the very soul of America." http://www.amazon.com...
American Gods is in the New Orleans and Jefferson Parish public libraries. There are discounted copies available online and it is also available as an ebook.
I am really looking forward to reading this one and discussing it with y'all.
See you soon!
