really liked it

Historical fiction from the end of the 5th century BCE, where the main character is fictional but living in Athens among actual people during actual events. I had read Renault's The Persian Boy in 1980, after it had been recommended to me when I was coming out of the closet. For me both were a stimulating mix of gay romance and detailed ancient history. This novel came to my attention from the seasonal reading list librarian Nancy Pearl compiled for the Summer of 2004.
