Episode 41 - The Persian Boy by Mary Renault

Ever get super horny for Alexander the Great, conqueror of worlds?  You will.  Join us as we get classical up in here with Mary Renault's 1972 The Persian Boy, a book about a traumatized teenager whose vast ambition centers entirely on jumping Alexander's bones.  Heads up - this book's got all sorts of traumatic historical stuff in it including but not limited to forced castration, rape, enslavement, and up close and personal war.
We are honored to have a special guest for this episode - John Kinard teaches English at the University of South Carolina, is a librarian at Allen University, believes in the ultimate triumph of the proletariat, and still thinks a great deal about Elisabeth Shue's coat/scarf combo in Adventures in Babysitting. 
He was kind enough to write us a piece for this post as well:
One of the things you’ll know about Courtney, if you know her as I do, is that she’s absolutely mad for poetry. Can’t get enough of it. If you see her out and about, throw a p…

Who are we?

We're two shit-disturbers from Columbia, South Carolina who love books and booze and talking over each other.  We met in a post-election fury and continue to agitate, take no shit, and drink heavily while reading the news.

Courtney is a Technical Librarian by way of a master’s degree in Public History. She has been obsessed with romance novels since she stole them off her Mamaw’s nightstand. She is a loud talker, likes the color pink, enjoys cheap wine, and thinks music festivals are dumb. She also is scared of bears, loves Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon, and is a Basic Southern bitch minus the racism and White Shoulders.

Sara is a Research and Readers' Advisory Librarian with a master's degree in Library and Information Science.  She once came in second on Jeopardy! but it was after Alex Trebek shaved off his mustache so she isn't sure if that counts. She is unafraid of bears as long as they are South Carolina bears; none of that west coast ursine shit.  She dresses like a lumberjack on vacation but owns more than one set of pearls and a lot of personalized stationery.
