Jennifer at has posted a very interesting interview with Shauna Roberts, author of LIKE MAYFLIES IN A STREAM. I love Mesopotamian history, so I'm really eager to read this one!

About the book (from the publisher):
In the great city of Uruk, there is no peace when Gilgamesh is restless, and he is never at rest. Shamhat, a priestess of Inanna, goes into the wilderness to find and civilize a match for Uruk's violently active God-King. Like Mayflies in a Stream brings new life to the Epic of Gilgamesh, diving into one of the earliest conflicts between civilization and wilderness, civic order and freedom, romance and sexuality. A book of the Hadley Rille Books Archaeology Series.

I don't think I've ever read any Mesopotamian history but this sure sounds interesting.

Did I already tell you that there's an award waiting for you on my blog, A Reader's Journal? I seem to be loosing track of what I've done and not done lately.

I think this book sounds really interesting. I don't know much about Mesopotamian history or Gilgamesh, so I think this would be a great read. Thanks so much for the head up on this book. I am off to check out the interview.
