[bksvol-discuss] Re: just submitted the Doula Advantage

Hi, Roger, were you writing to me about this book I mentioned, i.e.,
Courtesans and Fishcakes by James Davidson? If so, I used the word to
indicate what reviewers said about the book. My take on this is that the
book was regarded as refreshing, interesting, thought provoking. I didn't
get the sense the reviewers were panning the book. The implication was that
if you found the study of the classical world dull as ditchwater, this book
would change your mind. Regards, Kim aka Ellinder.

Revisionist? Do you mean that it is false?

Hi, Amber, I don't know if you are interested in reading about what Athenian
citizens used to blow their wealth on, but if you go to loc.gov/nls and
search
the catalog, if you write the title "Courtesans and Fishcakes, you will find
a book by James Davidson on that subject. I downloaded it because the title
grabbed me. This book is not in recorded form but just in web Braille, and
is the author's first book. It got rave reviews in Britain and is a
revisionist
book on the classical world. I don't know if this sort of thing interests
you, but I thought I'd pass it on to you just in case you are interested.
Think
of it as one less book you have to submit or proofread. In case other folks
on the list are interested, they can check out the book at the web site and
download it to their hearts content. Regards, Kim aka Ellinder.

I find it fascinating as well.  I've got many more books on the subject
coming.
