Kymm Coveney talks about Neil Gaiman's yen for the fantastic.

So what did you think of our latest BPP Book Club pick, Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys? Mike Pesca threw out some interesting questions in the segment this morning...if you've known Gaiman through his comics, do you like his novels as much? If you're African-American, or a black person from the Caribbean, do you think that Gaiman (who is white) pulled off a novel that is mostly about black characters? And if you're not a regular reader of fantasy books, did this one whet your appetite for more?
