Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eve has her own story, and she's been waiting millennia for Barbara McBride-Smith to tell it. It's the same for Mrs. Noah. If ever there were two misunderstood or under-appreciated women! Barbara McBride-Smith has singled them out for her trademark feminist humor.

Synopsis:

Eve has her own story, and she's been waiting millennia for Barbara McBride-Smith to tell it. It's the same for Mrs. Noah. If ever there were two misunderstood or under-appreciated women! Barbara McBride-Smith has singled them out for her trademark feminist humor. Following Eve and Mrs. Noah's stories are four of McBride-Smith's retellings of Greek myths from her West Texas trailer-trash persona, which is enough to make a grown man (or woman) cry. There's Theseus, one of the heroes of Greek mythology who turns out to be a guy who had a few cogs without a matching ratchet. And then there's Bacchus, the Greek god of wine. He was born without a mother, and had a hard childhood. Yet in McBride-Smith's version of the story, he goes on to be the patron saint of all women (and all hearty partiers)!
