"It takes skill to depict, as Miss Renault has done, this half-man, half Courtesan who is so deeply in love with the warrior." - The Atlantic Monthly The Persian Boy traces the last years of Alexander"s life through the eyes of his Lover, Bagoas. Abducted and gelded as a boy, Bagoas was sold as a courtesan to King Darius of Persia, but found freedom with Alexander after the Macedonian army conquered his homeland. Their relationship sustains Alexander as he weathers murder plots, the demands of two foreign wives, the sometimes-mutinous army, and his own ferocious temper. After Alexander"s mysterious death, we are left wondering if this Persian boy understood the great warrior and his ambitions better than anyone.
