Beard's Roman Women is a 1976 novel by British novelist Anthony Burgess. Dated "Montalbuccio-Monte Carlo-Eze-Callian, Summer 1975", according to Burgess it was written in the back of his Bedford Dormobile as he and his wife, Liana Burgess toured Europe and "partly in the bedroom of a small hotel run by Swiss homosexuals" (You've Had Your Time). The novel is set in Rome and is apparently based on Burgess's experience of being widowed in the mid-1960s.

A vicious fifteen-year-old "droog" is the central character of this 1963 classic, whose stark terror was captured in Stanley Kubrick's magnificent film of the same title. In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future, where criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends' social pathology. A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. When the state undertakes to reform Alex-to "redeem" him-the novel asks, "At what cost?"

Beard’s Roman Women is an odd book. I first discovered the novel long after I began reading Burgess’s back-catalogue. From a distance, it seemed a minor work, and I was drawn by the blockbusters such as Earthly Powers, Nothing Like the Sun, and A Clockwork Orange. The text is partnered with strange photographs of ghostly Roman monuments, reflected in puddles and in glass. The story is clearly autobiographical yet is told with an experimental flourish anchored in horror fiction and classical mythology. I was, of course, completely misguided.
