Product description

Review

Matthew Dennison is one of those rare marvels, a historical biographer whose work has reached the bestseller lists... For his latest work, Dennison has chosen a larger canvas. Taking as his starting-point The Twelve Cesars by Suetonius, he has built around that definitive text a humorous, intelligent, highly personal stroll through the careers of the first 12 men who ruled in post-republican Rome... Each story is told with humour and personal interpretations of the facts. Then there's the glory of language: Dennison is in love with the English language, and it shows. --The Independent

The author's prose style - epigrammatic, swift, and spiced with humour - is like Tacitus in translation. Which is meant as a compliment. His relish for his material shines infectiously through his sentences. --Thomas Hodgkinson, Spectator

Dennison's series of impressionistic pen portraits are compelling and imaginative. --Sunday Times

Book Description

An unforgettable depiction of the Roman empire at the height of its power and an elegantly sensational retelling of the lives and times of the 'twelve Caesars'. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
