Summary
"One part Plato, one part Aristophanes, two parts Easy Rider, Organ Grinder is a cocktail of lewd wisdom gathered equally from the poetry of antiquity and from near-death experiences on the open road. In a series of short works inspired by Horatian satire, Alan Fishbone bounces from gonzo fever-dream to philosophical treatise, investigating the conflicts between idealism and cynicism, love and sex, body and soul."--Amazon.com
Summary
In a book-length essay, the author, a motorcycle-riding scholar of ancient Greek and Latin, presents a series of short pieces inspired by Horatian satire that investigate the conflicts between idealism and cynicism, love and sex and body and soul
