Being immortal is
not all it once was. Yes, the twelve Greek gods of Olympus are alive and well
in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London town
house—and are none too happy about it. Even more disturbing, their powers are
For Artemis (goddess
of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone
sex operator), and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic), there’s no way out—until
a meek cleaner, Alice, and her would-be boyfriend, Neil, turn their world
literally upside down. When what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite
and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills, Alice and Neil are caught in
the cross fire, and they must fear not only for their own lives, but for the
survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed—but
can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical
heroes and save the world?
Gods Behaving Badly is that rare thing: a charming, funny,
utterly original first novel that satisfies the head and the heart.
