Reviews

Well-argued and engaging * Mary Beard, TLS *
If this book doesn't encourage a rebirth in interest in the Classics, nothing will. * Contemporary Review *
Fascinating... It is learned but an easy read, a rare combination. * Christopher Howse, Daily Telegraph on Memento Mori *
An often amusing, always illuminating, guide which offers an intriguing vantage point at which to examine Roman life. * All About History on Memento Mori *
