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.

This book sounds extremely interesting and the history of this famous man. Many thanks.
I would like to read this since Nero is a larger than life figure in history.
I am fascinated with Rome and this historical era. SPQR was terrific so would like to add this to my knowledge base!
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.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. I always have been fascinated by this man. Thank you for the opportunity.
