Default A neat book on Cuma

Hey all...after reading a little intro in Food & Wine about Jesse Browner's upcoming book on the last days of Petronius at Cuma, I was intrigued. It is a work of fiction, but it is a pretty interesting read and very food-focused. Cuma is in Campania not too far from Naples.

Petronius is falsely accused of a plot to assassinate Nero. Rather than await execution, he throws one last big party with lavish foods as he slowly commits suicide throughout the course of the evening. So far it is a very entertaining read...it's called The Uncertain Hour and you can get it on Amazon and I think see more on www.jessebrowner.com
