Complex Says: This is the book you save to prove to the ladies you take for a drive that you're sensitive, imaginative, and literate. The fact that it's a great story about an otherwise unremarkable man who finds out his dad is a West African trickster god Anansi and is read by noted UK comedian Lenny Henry is just a bonus.
