This is an auction for SOME TALK OF ALEXANDER: A JOURNEY THROUGH SPACE AND TIME IN THE GREEK WORLD, by Frederic Raphael. review:

"An irresistible blend of sex, politics, history and mythology, Frederic Raphael's vivid, far-reaching and often surprising take on the classical world will provoke, engage and amuse. Infused throughout with Raphael's characteristic dry humour, the details of mythological and historical personalities and events, along with the parallels of modern history, politics and society, make for an idiosyncratic and original exploration of the subject."
