  • Catulla et alby Tiffany Atkinson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Catulla et al summons up the sensual and scandalous spirit of the Latin poet Catullus -his lyricism, diatribe and bawdy -by turns wrenching, cynical and outrageous.

  • The Lady & the Hareby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.99
