Reviews

  • "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"
