Why Odin Drinks
'A delightfully quirky satire I didn't know I needed.' – Jenny Lawson, NYT bestselling author of Broken (In the Best Possible Way)
'Funny, quirky and surreal, this is the Norse Myth you've been craving' – Joanne Harris, NYT bestselling author of The Gospel of Loki
Poor Odin only just started existing and already has a Universe to decorate, a smug Tree to ignore, and two competitive brothers who think they'd make better All-Fathers. His wife, who knows the future, won't tell him a word because of his cheating, which he hasn't even invented yet. Horrible things such as celery, mosquitoes, Loki's dubious sense of humour, and people keep happening at him. The esteemed egg whisk and highly regarded feather duster? Not so much. There are only two sensible things Odin can do: 1) hang from the judgy Tree for nine days with a spear through his side and 2) drink from the Well of Wisdom, whose guardian, Sir Daddy Mímir, likes one-of-a-kind gifts. In his head, Odin's idea seems wise…
Perfect for fans of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Jenny Lawson, and Calvin & Hobbes, Why Odin Drinks is suitable for readers aged 14+. The book features no graphic content, although some characters wish it would.
