Reviews and Awards
"A spectacular piece of scholarship ... What makes this book nevertheless a pleasure to read is the (largely) accessible, humorous and warm manner in which it is written: there is, for example, a recurring joke about garum (226, 279) and a self-aware comment about Lightfoot's famous (to some) haunt in Oxford's Bodleian Library (371). So be under no illusion that diving into the world of the Apotelesmatica will be a disorientating experience for most students and scholars of the Greek and Roman world; but know also that you could have no more genial or supportive a guide." -- Max Leventhal, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"a spectacular piece of scholarship" -- Max Leventhal, Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
