Fat Charlie - "My name's Charlie ... Charlie" - was labelled as a child and it stuck (unlike the price tags we put on the books in my bookshop). He hates it. He also hates his father, who gloried in embarrassing him throughout his childhood and youth, and there's no way he's going to invite him to his wedding. But of course his fiancée is determined to have bridges mended etc. Happily however, Fat Charlie's father suddenly dies (hmmm, not really a sentence one should preface with the word 'happily'....) and Fat Charlie flies back to the U.S.A. to "make sure that he truly is buried". What ensues is a story that leads Fat Charlie places he has never imagined as he discovers that his father was a god - Anansi, the trickster - and that he has a brother that he never knew about. On speaking to a spider, saying he wants to meet his brother, Fat Charlie lets loose confusion, endangers his pending marriage and spends the majority of the book upset, angry, and even fearful. This is great Gaiman (as always!).
