Giveaway! Confessions of Young Nero by Margaret George.

Margaret George

The Confessions of Young Nero

I have one copy of, THE CONFESSIONS OF YOUNG NERO by Margaret George, for giveaway. Don’t miss out on this one. Please leave a comment below telling me why you would be interested in reading about Nero. Only U.S. addresses, please. And no P.O. boxes. I will choose one winner on Friday, March 10. Good luck!

Margaret George says in her Afterward of the book: ” This novel is my mission to rescue a gifted and remarkable young ruler, who was only sixteen when he became emperor, from what historian David Braund, in his essay”Apollo in Arms: Nero at the Frontier,”calls”the extensive fog of hostility, which clouds and surrounds almost all the historical record on Nero” and “makes historical analysis extraordinarily difficult.”

Many thanks to Berkley, a division of Penguin Random House, for making this giveaway happen.  Another great historical tome to add to your Margaret George collection.

  1. I am fascinated with Rome and this historical era. SPQR was terrific so would like to add this to my knowledge base!

  2. I’d like to read about Nero. I know virtually nothing about the man , even though he is part of a very popular expression. Rome burned while Nero fiddled.
