The first novel of Mary Renault to celebrate Ancient Greece is a rich and glowing tapestry of life in Athens, as the city slides slowly into decline towards the end of the Peloponnesian War. Skilfully blending historical and invented characters, the book raised historical fiction to new levels of style and insight, whilst calmly breaking taboos in its unapologetic depictions of Athenian sexual culture.
