Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys are now available at Fully Booked, which has become my favourite bookstore ever since they bought in Neil for a signing a couple of months ago. And, at the risk of sounding like an advert, FB has the most interesting selection of books; if you have to go to only one bookstore in Manila, make sure it’s this one.
Excuse the giddiness. I finally have a copy of Anansi Boys! It’s a limited edition, meaning if you buy one now, you may also get a letter from Neil which will be inserted in your copy at the cashier’s. I have letter no. 158 of 1000 and, if I ever feel unscrupulous enough, I might put it up on e-Bay, but… I won’t. Hee.
It’s only the first chapter and I’m already smiling and chuckling softly at witty parts. I hope I don’t finish it overnight as I did Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince…
