If you've ever read The Iliad and wanted to dig deeper into the friendships behind the men and gods, Song of Achilles is what you've been waiting for. Madeline Miller, who specializes in retelling classics for modern readers, follows famed Achilles and his mortal bff, Patroclus, exiled and overlooked, from childhood to the very battles of Troy. Miller's first novel, a heartbreaking love story, will leave you with a new appreciation of the old tale.
