Description
A favorite of private presses and illustrators since the invention of printing, Apuleius's 2nd-century comic masterpiece traces the misadventures of a young man who is a bit too curious about magic. Hoping to change himself into an owl, he instead becomes a donkey, and in this form is sold, stolen, or shunted from one master to the next. Along the way he sees the saints and villains, the venal merchants and greedy priests, of the sprawling Roman Empire, until he's transformed back to human form via divine intervention. Classicist M.D. Usher offers this creative adaptation of the tale, with ink drawings by cartoonist T. Motley that harken to previous depictions of the story.

"A faithful (if relatively clean) version of the world's oldest surviving complete novel, written 'for librarians, teachers, scholars, and extremely intelligent children.' An entertaining romp, even without the raunchy bits."Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
