Best of the Greeks

Despite the epic "snowstorm" of 25 January, the Alexandria Book club met to discuss Madeline Miller's novel The Song of Achilles.

We celebrated the funeral games of Patroclas, ate figs, drank wine and concurred that Achilles really was kind of a jerk.

Most of the club members found the book lyrical and moving, although some acknowledged that it was rather modish.
