A slim hardback volume on high quality paper of very free and rather camp translations of Martial’s epigrams relating to pretty boys in the somewhat decadent days of Rome. Personally, I find it all a bit precious (and at £3 it is) and coy, but it will no doubt appeal to classicists and/or romantics, and will probably find it’s way into many homes in Harrow, Eton and Winchester.
