9780349407142: The Goddess of Buttercups and Daisies

Set in ancient Athens, The Goddess of Buttercups and Daisies is the new book from the celebrated author of The Good Fairies of New York and the Kalix Werewolf series.

This is Martin Millar at his best, gently poking fun while tugging at our heart strings, surprising us with sudden and sharp insights into the life of the outsider. It comes complete with a struggling playwright (a little-known bloke called Aristophanes), excess cavorting, an assortment of divinities, the odd Amazon and some truly execrable poetry. Fans of Kalix, here you will find no laudanum but a lot of drinking. No carnage, but plenty of intrigue and danger. And humour (of course). And a love story. And a few very troublesome phalluses.

Praise for Martin Millar

'These mortals do keep on writing.' - The Goddess Athena

'It's not a bad book, I suppose.' The Poet Luxos (who might have given a more enthusiastic quote if Martin had let him write an introduction to the book LIKE HE PROMISED but unfortunately Martin is a prosaic soul with no true appreciation of lyric poetry)

'Is there any more wine?' - Aristophanes

Recensione:

Brixton's answer to Kurt Vonnegut ( Uncut)

Undeniably brilliant ( Guardian)

The funniest writer in Britain today ( GQ)

I [don't] understand why Martin Millar isn't as celebrated as Kurt Vonnegut, as rich as Terry Pratchett, as famous as Douglas Adams. I've been a fan of his work for almost twenty years ( Neil Gaiman)

The grungy, gory, glorious world that World Fantasy Award-winner Millar has created is unforgettable ( Booklist)

Once again, Martin Millar proves his deftness at helping us to understand the human condition of the outsider, the exiled of society, be they squatter, fairy, or a lonely werewolf girl ( Andi Sex Gang)

Brilliant . . . humorous, if violent, romp featuring quirky characters and situations ( Booklist)

Descrizione del libro:

New book by cult author Martin Millar with his usual blend of satirical humour and off-beat charm, perfect for fans of Neil Gaimon, Christopher Brookmyre and Ben Aaronovitch
