In this wickedly funny, irreverent tribute to mythological “bad girl” goddesses from around the world, Trina Robbins tells 20 nasty, bitchy, utterly enjoyable tales. Her goddesses sleep with dwarves, slip drugs into drinks, have catfights with their sisters, kill, get even, and generally raise hell. Readers meet Innanna, the Sumerian goddess who plies the god of wisdom with beer so she can steal his powers; Norse goddess Freya, the original Snow White, who is after a diamond necklace; and Lilith, created by God to be Adam's equal, but hungry for more.

About the Author:

Trina Robbins has been called Bad by the best of them. More polite people simply refer to her as "outspoken." The author of several books, including From Girls to Grrlz, Tomorrow's Heirlooms, and The Great Women Superheroes, she has been a pagan since 1977. She admittedly can't live without cats, and she considers herself the oldest grrrl in San Francisco.

From Publishers Weekly:

Speaking of attitude, women looking to get in touch with their inner bitch will revel in Eternally Bad: Goddesses with Attitude, by award-winning feminist cartoonist Trina Robbins (From Girls to Grrrlz), which features a self-test for readers at the end. Looking at long-ago cultures from Ireland and Greece to Japan, Robbins profiles 24 kick-ass babes who are "not your mother's New Age goddess!" While Isis and Artemis do make an appearance, she also introduces less familiar ones, like Inanna, a Sumerian goddess who got her grandfather, the god of wisdom, drunk and convinced him to give her all his magical powers. Author tour in Northern California and New York.
