Thornton Wilder;  Kurt Vonnegut (Foreword) ;  Penelope Niven (Foreword)
First published in 1930, Wilder's best-selling Novel The Woman of Andros is set on a Greek island before the birth of Christ. It tells the story of the enigmatic Chrysis, a charismatic courtesan shunned by society. In her encounters with the young men of the island, Chrysis probes what is precious about life, and how we live, love and die in a harsh world. Pamphilus, the only son of a prominent villager, fathers a baby out of wedlock with Chrysis' sister, whom he wants to marry. The questions faced by Pamphilus, his family and the other 'respectable' citizens of the island also explore themes of social class and status. The book was inspired by Andria, a comedy by the Roman playwright Terence.

The Ides of March, first published in 1948, is an epistolary novel set in the Rome of Julius Caesar. Wilder brings to life a dramatic period of world history and many of its chief protagonists, including Cleopatra, Catullus and Cicero, combining letters with other documents to perform a remarkable feat of evocation.
Thornton Wilder - Thornton Wilder (1897-1975) was a novelist and playwright. The Bridge of San Luis Rey, one of his seven novels, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1928, while his play, The Matchmaker was adapted into the musical Hello, Dolly!

Kurt Vonnegut - Kurt Vonnegut was the author of numerous novels, plays and essay collections, including Catís Cradle, Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions. He died in 2007.
