The Goddess of Buttercups and Daisies

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

The year is 421 BC and playwright Aristophanes is struggling. He's halfway through his new masterpiece but it's tough keeping focused with politicians shouting for war, the public demanding peace, a terrifyingly poor poet on the loose and an assortment of gods (who are no better than they ought to be) skipping about causing untold mischief. Worst of all, his comedy fake phalluses have gone floppy. His chances of winning first prize at the Dionysia Festival are looking weaker by the day - and that's before the death threats begin . . .

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. A whimsical and charming fantasy, this is a must-read for fans of Neil Gaimon, Ben Aaronovitch and Kurt Vonnegut.

'Undeniably brilliant' - Guardian

'The funniest writer in Britain today' - GQ

'Martin Millar writes like Kurt Vonnegut might have written, if he'd been born fifty years later in a different country and hung around with entirely the wrong sort of people' - Neil Gaiman

'For the deceptively simple poetry of the everyday, nobody does it better' - List
