I was reading this on Steinway Street one night, while waiting for the Liz Most, when a ponytailed Lothario with a South American accent accosted me outside the Duane Reade.

"Hallo. HALLO! Can you please say the title of the book?" He indicated Stone's text in my hands, which is really quite good and should be read by anyone who thinks Socrates was an oligarchy-loving windbag. I lifted the book into his field of view.

"That is the best translation!"

"Well, actually this is an original work, not a translation..."

"NO!" he insisted. He then took a piece of paper from his overflowing beaded bag, quickly jotted down the name of the book, and walked away.
