His father Francis Nehemiah Bangs was a lawyer in New York City, as was his brother, Francis S. Bangs.

As the gods' guest, he learns just what the immortal divinities are up to in modern times, with hilarious results. Bangs 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.

While this provided an interesting story, it was somewhat slow. If you are a beginner with mythology, this will be great for you. If you are already familiar with mythology, this can still provide an interesting twist on Greek mythology. There was one thing that bothered me: as a British man, the main character uses "Jove" instead of Zeus or even Jupiter. Children will get bored of this, but others might find it interesting. It's free, so even if you don't enjoy it, you lose nothing.

This book is very short and frankly, not terribly interesting. It was doubtless fascinating to another audience many years ago, but not to me now.

If you can divert your sensibilities from the incredibly racist comments (albeit perfectly acceptable in the author's time), it is a very amusing read. As a fan of greek mythology, I enjoyed this read, and the author's snappy tone.
