SummaryAdd a Summary
Recently released from prison, Shadow faces a different kind of life then what he envisioned: his wife is dead and he discovers that forgotten gods exist in North America. Leprechauns wear denim jackets and mesh baseball caps, genies drive taxis, and the goddess Easter has picnic lunches in a park in San Francisco. But new gods such as Technology and Media are threatening domination. Like the coin tricks that Shadow had become adept at performing in the clink, nothing is what it seems in today's world. Amidst all of this uncertainty, only one truth is known: the storm is coming. In deftly imagined settings, rich characters gallop through a plot that will have the reader furiously flipping through the pages (or in my case, fumbling for the next CD). Don't read this book if you don't want a book you can't put down!
