Catullus, I tell myself, here’s the angle: trouble comes when there’s time to burn.

Bad Kid Catullus

£10.00

Sidekick Headbooks No. 2

Gaius Valerius Catullus was Ancient Rome’s most notorious scandal-monger, filthsmith and lovelorn wretch. In this interactive handbook, his famously sexy, savage, tender and scurrilous poems have been transformed and mutated in myriad ways: compressed, expanded, bricolaged, Catullus in six pulp genres, Catullus as playlist – even a Catullus karma sutra. And then there are pages for you, the reader, to fill in, in your own obscene fashion.

You’ll never look at a sparrow the same way again.
