Does anyone subscribe to the Times Literary Supplement? We did a year or two ago, but stopped when we admitted to ourselves we never actually read it. But now I want to get my hands on the issue from November 28th, because in it the classicist Peter Green names my sister Susan’s new book of translations of Martial’s poetry one of the top books of 2014! I read the TLS issue at the library, but it would be nice to get a paper copy as a souvenir. I didn’t hear about it until it was gone from the shops.
There’s also a great review in the New York Times here: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/07/books/review/bob-odenkirks-a-load-of-hooey-and-more.html?emc=edit_bk_20141205&nl=books&nlid=56615 23.
What a fun thing this is to celebrate in my 1000000th blog post! (That’s 64th in binary).
