Mary Renault is my favorite historical fiction writer. My sophomore English teacher in high school introduced me to her, and I've remained devoted ever since.

I agree with you. And thank goodness for excellent English teachers!

She introduced me to another side of Alexander the Great. I couldn't be more thankful (though I could have done without the Bagoas character. *g*) Alexander, Perseus, she brought them both to life. Happy Birthday, Mary Renault!
