Blanket search for a beach book?

The Province featured an interview with UBC classical studies professor Cristopher Marshall for a story on ideal beach reads.

“I’m in love with the literature of the ancient world, from Homer on down,” Marshall said. “But when you are looking for a beach book from this time, you are looking for something of a certain length. You don’t want to be weighed down. You don’t want to deal with footnotes. You want something fun, light and frothy.”

The story also appeared in the Calgary Herald.
