  • Anglais Anansi boys

    Neil Gaiman

    Comptable londonien sans envergure et sans histoires, Gros Charlie Nancy ne se distingue de la majorité de ses concitoyens que par une timidité maladive et une peur du ridicule qui confine à la paranoïa. Ah ! et accessoirement, il est le fils du dieu Anansi. Le problème, c'est que c'est son frangin, Mygale, qui a hérité des pouvoirs paternels. A l'aise en toute circonstance, doté d'un charme irrésistible, d'un bagout insolent, d'un mépris éhonté pour toute considération morale... tout l'inverse de Gros Charlie, qui a dû se contenter, lui, du sens des responsabilités et d'un goût pathologique pour le conformisme. Aussi, le jour où Mygale débarque dans sa vie pathétique, bien décidé à y mettre un peu de piment, ses ennuis ne font que commencer...
