Overdue Episode 144: The Last of the Wine
November 9, 2015
Mary Renault’s The Last of the Wine depicts Ancient Greece as truthfully as possible. It is historical fiction filled with war, political intrigue, pederasty and explicit homosexual love – the likes of which were rather scandalous when she published it in the 1950s.
Her book also spawned an episode complete with discussions of Mr(s). Doubtfire, Alexander the Fine, unread text messages, and mummy libraries.
This week’s episode is brought you to by the Greek god of web design, Squarespace.
