American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages, and won several awards. It’s the story of a war brewing between the old gods from the world’s religion and mythology, and the new gods like money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. The protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard to Mr. Wednesday, a conman and one of the older gods, as he gathers his forces to take on the new gods.
