American Gods (svensk utgåva) by Neil Gaiman Summary

Amerikanska gudar utkom för första gången 2001 och har översatts till över 30 språk. Efter tre år i fängelse vill Shadow inget hellre än att återvända till sin fru Laura och leva ett stillsamt liv med henne. Men bara dagar innan han friges nås han av nyheten att Laura dött i en mystisk bilolycka, och hela Shadows värld rasar samman. På flygresan hem till begravningen skakas planet av en våldsam storm, och en man som kallar sig mr Wednesday presenterar sig för Shadow och påstår sig vara en före detta gud och kungen av Amerika. På något sätt verkar han veta precis allt om Shadow och erbjuder honom ett jobb som hans livvakt. Shadow, som inte har någon annan stans att ta vägen, tar jobbet men upptäcker snart att hans roll i Wednesdays planer är farligare än han någonsin hade kunnat föreställa sig. Ganska snart dras Shadow och Wednesday in i en konflikt lika gammal som mänskligheten själv. För under vardagens stilla yta pågår en kamp om Amerikas själ. Neil Gaimans spektakulära roman Amerikanska gudar utgavs för första gången på svenska år 2003 och har vunnit en mängd priser. Det är en mörk och brokig resa rätt in i myternas värld, där Neil Gaiman med sin mästerliga berättarkonst väver samman verklighet och fantasi. Romanen är nu aktuell som TV-serie, med Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning och Pablo Schreiber i huvudrollerna. Serien är producerad av FremantleMedia North America och finns internationellt tillgänglig på Amazon Prime Video. Boken har vunnit en mängd fina priser, bl.a.

American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition by Neil Gaiman Summary

First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic—an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman. A storm is coming . . . Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow’s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself. Life as Wednesday’s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined—it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path. Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.
