A joy from cover to cover!,
This review is from: Courtesans and Fishcakes: The Consuming Passions of Classical Athens (Paperback)
Erudite, well written and shockingly funny, James Davidson's book on ancient Greek consumption is a joy to read. This is, I feel, a much better work than his latest offering 'The Greeks and Greek Love: A Radical Reapprasial of homosexuality in Ancient Greece'. which I found rather hard going.
'Courtesans and Fishcakes' would interest a lot of readers, regardless of any previous knowledge of the period.
