Praise

“Lively and Lucid. The real action [in] the classical world lay in Alexandria. Tells the story of ancient Alexandrian science, Cleopatra, with relish and brio.”

-Barry Strauss, author of The Trojan War: A New History and The Battle of Salamis

“Lucid, entertaining, full of exquisite images.”
-Michael Hirst, screenwriter of Elizabeth
