Here are the books on my immediate to-read list, in no particular order, although I know I’ll just add random crap as I go:
Lysistrata, Aristophanes (got a new lovely Sandglass hardcover edition with illustrations by Picasso)
The Secret History of Moscow, Ekaterina Sedia (very excited about this)
The Love-Artist, Jane Alison (also very excited about this)
Memoirs of a Medieval Woman: The Life and Times of Margery Kempe, Lousie Collis
The Annotated Hans Christian Anderson, edited by Maria Tatar
Slaves and Masters in the Roman Empire: A Study in Social Control, K.R. Bradley
Greek Religion (not just the sections on Orphism and Dionysos), Walter Burkert
The Greeks and the Irrational, E.R. Dodds
The Twelve Caesars, Suetonius
The Greek Way, Edith Hamilton
I know I’ll have a ton of Jane Austen to add to this list come January as I’m taking a class on her, so that’s in the works, as well.
