Description
In this blend of sex, politics, history, and mythology, Academy Award–winning screenwriter Frederic Raphael offers a vivid, wide-ranging, often surprising take on the classical world, infused with his characteristic dry humor and spiced with wryly captioned art. The details of mythological and historical personalities and events, along with the parallels of modern history, politics, and society, make for a highly original and entertaining introduction to the founding of Western civilization.

"A freefall reading experience that is both liberating and mesmeric.... Readers should cocoon themselves in this charismatic book."—BBC History
