Meet Diane, a permaculture gardener dripping with butch charm. She’s got supernatural abilities owing to her true identity – the Greek god Dionysus – and she’s returned to the modern world to gather mortal followers and restore the earth to its natural state. Where better to begin than with four housewives in a suburban New Jersey cul-de-sac? Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George pens a hilarious evisceration of the blind eye we all turn to climate change and the bacchanalian catharsis that awaits us, even in our own backyards.
