I'm so thrilled that this mosaic novel is finally ready for the eager eyes of readers. I contracted this book years ago. It's been a mammoth effort by the author, a professor of Classics, to bring to life once more the brave men and women of Sparta. And, being a Lethe Press title, it does not shy away from the homoerotic passions and romances of Ancient Greece. I remember reading a wrestling scene in an early draft--and asking Charles to give more details, more interiority on what it must have been like to wrestle nude in that society. I'm so pleased and proud to release this wonderful book.
