Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips
Gods Behaving Badly finds the twelve gods of the Greek Pantheon still alive (they are immortal) and living in a dirty, rat-infested house in London. Their powers are waning, though, since humanity has mostly forgotten them. They've found work in the modern world; Artemis is a dog-walker, Apollo is a TV psychic, Aphrodite is a phone sex operator, and Dionysus is a DJ in a nightclub. They also cling to the past behaviors of debauchery, promiscuity, and vengeance. When a woman refuses Apollo's request for a sexual act, he turns her into a tree. The gods hire a timid housekeeper, Alice, who has a boyfriend, Neil. Aphrodite, though, is up to her old tricks and she has Eros fire one of his arrows into Apollo, who falls for Alice, who also spurns his advances. This leads to Apollo's anger and a trip by Neil and Artemis to Hades, through the London Underground, to rescue her. Marie Phillips' debut novel has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "Gods Behaving Badly is much more fun than it has any right to be."
