Eternally Bad: Goddesses with Attitude

Eternally Bad:  
Goddesses with Attitude  
by Trina Robbins
Conari Press


These are baaaad girls, but you can’t just spank ’em, because they’re goddesses! Are you tired of reading about Jesus-in-a-skirt? Are you sick of so-called goddesses with less spine than a can of tuna? Read this book!

Eternally Bad: Goddesses with Attitude introduces a whole host of divine ladies who will make you laugh, cry, and yelp, “She did WHAT?” This is not the dusty mythology you remember from high school English classes. On the contrary, this writing is juicy and delicious, with an upbeat contemporary tone that makes it accessible to today’s readers.

Who says a goddess can’t change with the times? Come read about Inanna, who got her grandfather drunk and wheedled him out of all his powers; Freya, who slept with a bunch of dwarves to get the necklace Brisingamen; plump Uzume and the creation of the striptease;

Lilith, the world’s first feminist; Osmotar, who invented beer; Artemis, who likes girls but not boys; Grizzly Woman and her deadly magical boogers; and dancing Kali’s outrageous wardrobe.


RATING: 4 Broomsticks
