    (Including my own Adaptation! Yay!)

    (ETA: And The Letter Q, which I and many other writers are in!)

    Yes! We here at LJ particularly loved The Song of Achilles.

Miller, Madeline. The Song of Achilles. Ecco: HarperCollins. ISBN 9780062060617. $24.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062060631. F
Patroclus is an awkward, exiled young prince; golden Achilles is the much-admired son of a sea goddess. In telling the story of their intense friendship and love, debut novelist Miller brings Homer’s ancient Greece to glorious life and offers a “masterly vision of the valor, drama, and tragedy of the Trojan War.” Her reinterpretation of The Iliad deservedly won the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction.
