A Connoisseur of Human Folly
September is ANCIENT ROME DRAMA BOMB MONTH

At least in my house.

So, nyrbclassics just published a new edition of Augustus by John Williams which I have heard nothing but good things about, and I am ecstatic to finally read.

Augustus is often mentioned in the same breath as Robert Graves’ Claudius books. Because of my ENDURING and PASSIONATE love for them (and the PBS mini-series they inspired - thanks for making us watch it in Latin class, Mrs. Hughes!) I have decided to re-read I, Claudius and Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina.

Any recommendations for other good historical fiction about Roman emperors?
