Author's BIOGRAPHY

J. A. Macaluso



J. A. Macaluso was born and raised in the working class Italian section of South Philadelphia, where he remembers much of his adolescence playing out almost as a scene from the Hollywood movie "Grease". His parents were of Sicilian and Tuscan extraction, and a curious combination of tact and temper. Being somewhat quiet by nature, he survived school by drawing tattoos on the arms of the “tough kids”. His knowledge of Caesar began when he was about 7 or 8, when his mother read to him from the old Classic Illustrated Comics' "Caesar's Conquests". Later he would draw scenes of battles from this same comic book. He still has one over his desk today.

In High School and College where he took the equivalent of some seven years of Latin, he read all he could of Caesar and his times in both Latin and English. He has always been an avid reader and has accumulated an extensive library on many subjects over the years.

"Caius, The making of the Hero", (220 pages, 2005) is his first book, and a controversial, yet intriguing novel of the young Caesar during his first marriage. This book is available as an E-Novel, downloadable from this web site.

His second book, "The Philosophy of the GOOD", (233 pages, 2008), an Anthology of Essays on his "Weltanschauung und Weltschmerz" (world-view, and world-weariness), and a complete system of Philosophy, has just been published as a free e-book available on this site. It was originally derived from his research on the novel on Caesar and his times.
