Product description

Review

"Very, very funny and delightfully original as well as acutely clever in a makes-you-think-about-contemporary-morality-without-realising-it kind of way... this novel will not only make you laugh and give you a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling, it will also provide a good basic grounding in Greek mythology" (Independent)

"What makes the novel stand out - and it really does stand out - is its originality and lightness of touch" (Daily Telegraph)

"The Olympians are immortal - this we all know. But it has taken Marie Phillips' wit to put them back where they belong - into a decrepit 21st-century London bedsit. It is all very, very funny...this book charms and provokes in a paragraph. I am writing this in Delphi, dangling my feet in Apollo's sacred spring - the water is said to bring the muse. Phillips clearly has a bottle of it on her desk" (Bettany Hughes The Times)

"An absolutely delightful novel" (Scotland on Sunday)

"Ingeniously imagined and satisfyingly lusty" (Guardian)

Book Description

Funny and unpretentious, witty and readable, Gods Behaving Badly lives up to all its potential.
