I just realized that I don't have this book - I bought the other one. When I was at the APA a couple of years ago, I talked to McKeown about the Roman one, telling him how much I liked it. Sharon told me to go away and stop encouraging him, or he would write another one. I guess he did, lol. He's supposed to be writing an Ovid commentary or something.
If you're feeling like reading about classics in your free time (ugh), you might like The Savage Garden by Mark Mills (really good), or The Secret History by Donna Tartt (really creepy). The latter is, like, a pre-req for any Classics major studying Greek. That book gets passed around a classics dept like STDs in a dorm.
