Olympian Nights Summary

Olympian Nights - An American traveler of the twentieth century finds himself stranded in Greece, robbed and alone, and takes sanctuary in a cave. .. that proves to be the entrance to the home of the gods. As the gods' guest, he learns just what the immortal divinities are up to in modern times, with hilarious results. The author portrays the gods going about their duties and personal affairs in the terms of American high society, with all the elegance, archness, wit, jealousy, and pettiness of the idle rich. Mythic grandeur and modern wit prove a perfect fit in this sharp satire.
