WINNER OF THE 1973 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD By the Author of StonerIn 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 inButcher’s Crossing and the campus novel in Stoner.
