Neil Gaiman joins Kurt Andersen to talk about his new novel Anansi Boys. It's about the two sons of the Afro-Caribbean spider god Anansi, whom Gaiman wrote about in his breakout novel American Gods. Gaiman has also written the new movie Mirrormask, produced by the Jim Henson Company. It's the story of a teenage compulsive doodler who draws herself into a strange and dangerous world. We'll talk with Gaiman about how fantasy is becoming more respectable these days.
