Donkey Wise is back, with an AMAZING offer for you!

W.W. Norton has published an exciting new translation of one of the world’s earliest novels – The Golden Ass by Apuleius.

Illustrated by prize-winning artists Anya and and Varya Kendel, this newly rendered work will be enjoyed by anyone who cares about human and animal life.
