Funeral Games
London: John Murray; New York: Pantheon (1981)

        The generals had stood aside while the men passed by. Ptolemy wiped his eyes. Perdikkas stepped over to the bed. "Alexander. When you are received among the gods, at what times shall we offer you worship?"
        I don't think he expected any answer; just wanted, if he could still be heard, to make a gift of honor, as he felt it due. He was heard. Alexander came back to us, as if out of deep water. The smile still hung about him. He whispered, "When you are happy."           — The Persian Boy, 408-9
