(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.
