really liked it
Read in November, 2010

An interesting twist on African folk tales featuring Anansi the Spider. Out of children's tales and into multi-dimensional fantasy, starting with the death of Anansi (Mr. Nancy) and following the voyage of discovery of his half-mortal (?) son, Fat Charlie Nancy, who after his father's death discovers he has a twin brother, Spider, who "got all the god stuff." Or did he?
