'Exhilarating and terrifying' Independent

'A warm, funny, immensely entertaining story about the impossibility of putting up with your relations - especially if they happen to be Gods' Susanna Clarke

If you need him, just tell a spider. He'll come running.

Fat Charlie Nancy used to have a normal life. But that all changes the moment his estranged father drops dead in a karaoke bar, leaving a trail of chaos in his wake.

Fat Charlie didn't know his dad was a god. He certainly didn't know he was Anansi the trickster spider-god, lord of rebellion and disorder. He didn't know he had a brother, either.

Now his brother, Spider, is on his doorstep trying to take over his life, flat and fiancee. And Fat Charlie's going to have to resort to something drastic - and dangerous - to get back on track.
