I learned about the Satyricon from a talk by Victor David Hansen. It is his favorite piece of literature because it details the same degeneracy in the Roman empire as present day USA.

Details the misadventures of the narrator, Encolpius, and his lover, a handsome sixteen-year-old servant boy named Giton. Throughout the novel, Encolpius has a difficult time keeping his lover faithful to him as he is constantly being enticed away by others. Encolpius's friend Ascyltus (who seems to have previously been in a relationship with Encolpius) is another major character.
