Augustus John Williams & Daniel Mendelsohn read online review & book description:

WINNER OF THE 1973 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 
By the Author of Stoner

In Augustus, his third great novel, John Williams took  on an entirely new challenge, a historical narrative set in classical Rome, exploring the life of the founder of the Roman Empire. To tell the story, Williams turned to the epistolary novel, a genre that was new to him, transforming and transcending it just as he did the western in Butcher’s Crossing and the campus novel in Stoner. Augustus is the final triumph of a writer who has come to be recognized around the world as an American master.

    In fact, best fiction about Roman history, well, just history, I've ever read. Mr. Williams makes us see through genuine human nature by displaying the life of one of the most renowned historic figure. The words are beautiful, heartwarming and honest. ...And I have to admit, I was quite shocked that an American wrote this.
