Unique Qualities:
Rating: ok hist; fairly good fict (FM). ---Books about Catullus are very rare, and this book really doesn't do him justice. ...The sex scenes are rather graphic, and the translations of Catullus' poems are not great.... The book is interesting, but it is not for high school students. (R Breindel)
