"Amy Richlin is a gifted and original scholar who has taught a whole generation of classicists and their students answers to the question, What made the Romans laugh? Now it turns out she has contemporary cultures' number as well. She translates Roman laughter into American laughter. From its ingeniously banal title onwards, Rome and the Mysterious Orient brings three remarkable and rarely performed comedies to life on the page and—one hopes, often—the stage."—James Tatum, author of Plautus: The Darker Comedies
