Penguin's first Talmud transl. Norman Solomon

Penguin is publishing its first edition of the Talmud (June 30).

Norman Solomon’s lucid translation from the Bavli (Babylonian) is accompanied by an introduction on The Talmud’s arrangement, social and historical background, reception, and authors.

Also at Penguin's Radio Room I am enjoying Classics on Air.
A Cup Of Poetry features a reading of "The Aztec Empire" by Fran Ritchie from her book The Warrior: A Mother's Story of a Son at War (Viking 2008).
