Subject: an imaginative recreation of the origin of the "Q" document. from the foreward: "We must assume that some noble youth went everywhither, collecting the reminiscences of shepherds, soldiers, artisans, and fishermen, and later assembled in his priceless collection bits of leather, goat-skin parchment, inscriptions on wood, and on metal, written by many hands, and in several languages, in many lands, until at last these records were brought together in a full story." His protagonist is Phaedrus, a literary slave. (from David Lupher)
