Neil Gaiman’s Insights About America

I finally got around to reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It’s unlike anything I’ve read. As insightful as it is original. It’s also why I’m not getting enough sleep.

Neil’s insights on America are fascinating. This one made me stop and think:

“This is the only country in the world,” said Wednesday, into the stillness, “that worries about what it is.”

“What?”

“The rest of them know what they are. No one ever needs to go searching for the heart of Norway. Or looks for the soul of Mozambique. They know what they are.”
