Naked and living in a barrel
I can draw lots of parallels with Too Like the Lightning by Ada Palmer. Both authors are scholars and both are inspired by ancient periods of Western history (Enlightment and Classical). Both reference Western philosophers. Both also use a more literary writing styles (to mixed, but mostly positive, results). Both try to envision alternative to our current liberal economies and democracies. It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism, and both authors, Palmer and Lucazeau, try to take up that challenge.That sounds, if you'll pardon the repetition, refreshingly fresh. When you finish please let us know your thoughts and if you'd recommend it.
I'll keep you posted, but as far as I know, there aren't any English translation of Latium.
