The Golden Ass (Translated By P. G. Walsh)
By Apuleius, P. G. Walsh
Why this book?
Not so much a novel as a loosely connected set of rambling anecdotes dealing with everything from incompetent market officials to Greek myth and sex and superstition. The whole thing is told with great verve and is a sackful of fun. Try P.G. Walsh's translation available from Oxford. World Classics.
