One of the main advantages of Olson’s new edition is that it is reader-friendly. When The Learned Banqueters quotes from a known author, Olson follows the text of, and gives the reference to, the best modern edition, making it easy for the reader to look up the citation in its original context… Olson’s translation is largely excellent, and captures the spirit of the different authors quoted.—Helen Morales, The Times Literary Supplement

The re-evaluation of Athenaeus continues. This is the very welcome first volume of a new Loeb edition of the Deipnosophistae intended to replace the set of volumes edited by Charles Gulick (1927–41).—J.L. Lightfoot, Exemplaria Classica

Essential for food historians. Excellent value.—AKD, Petits Propos Culinaires

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
