War Brides by Helen Bryan
War Brides by Helen Bryan
When four women reunite in an English village to commemorate the end of a war they lived through together, television cameras miss the more newsworthy angle: The women's mission is not only to commemorate—they've also returned to settle a score and avenge one of their own.

Editorial Reviews

Review

[Ruden] has caught, better than any translator known to me, both the conversational patterns of Petronian dialogue and the camera-sharp specificity and color of the Satyricon's descriptive passages. . . . A quite extraordinary achievement against heavy odds. --Peter Green, The Los Angeles Times Book Review



Relying on. . . her excellent knowledge of Latin, her lively feel for contemporary slang and rhythm, and her infectious love of the work, [Ruden] gives us the full Satyricon; she shows us a man making a comic masterpiece out of Neronian chaos. . . . Her book as a whole, breathing knowledge and affection, is a delight. --Donald Lyons, The New Criterion



This is a really useful volume which can readily be recommended as a set text to students. The ten commentaries at the end are judicious overviews of important topics connected with the work and the suggestions for further reading are up-to-date and intelligent. --Susanna Morton Braund, Yale University

I really loved this book, but unless you have someone that can translate some of the names for you and are familiar with the epics and roman/greek myths, much of the humor may be lost on you. I wish the end wasn't fragmentary; I would have liked to read more.
