Was Caligula not so bad after all? In the bestselling tradition of his Roman Quartet, Allan Massie takes on one of the most notorious Roman emperors
Allan Massie is the award-winning author of many novels, including his Roman Quartet, Antony, Augustus, Tiberius and Caesar, as well as several works of non-fiction. He lives in the Scottish Borders and writes for the Daily Telegraph and the Scotsman.
CALIGULA is an impressive addition to a sequence of novels that in their sustained interest and detailed recreation of a society at once alien and familiar must rank as one of the most important historical chronicles in contemporary fiction. - Barry Unsworth, Spectator
