Anansi Boys - Neil Gaiman

This probably should be read after American Gods but I'm glad I read it first as AG is a better tale. This isn't to say that I didn't enjoy the story of Fat Charlie Nancy's word getting turned upside down when he discovers his late father was actually a god and he has a brother whose magical powers are only rivaled by his ability to disrupt Charlie's life. And there is the added complication that now Mr. Nancy is no more, an old, and equally god-like, enemy comes calling.
