Summary (From the publisher):

The Golden Ass is a unique and thoroughly entertaining Latin novel--the only such work to have survived in its entirety. It tells the story of Lucius, whose fascination with sex and magic results in his transformation into an ass. After suffering many trials and humiliations, he is ultimately transformed back into human shape by the kindness of the goddess Isis.

The Golden Ass, Or, A Book of Changes (2007)
Edition Details:

Relihan uses alliteration and assonance, rhythm and rhyme, the occasional archaism, the rare neologism, and devices of punctuation and typography, to create a sparkling, luxurious, and readable translation that reproduces something of the linguistic and comic effects of the original Latin. The general Introduction is a masterpiece of clarity, orienting the reader in matters of authorship, narration, genre, religion, structure and style. A generous and browsable index, select bibliography, and maps are included.
