Editorial ReviewGoldsworthy is excellent at tracing the often bewildering succession of Ptolemys and Cleopatras as they murder, marry and spawn one another. His talent for narrative is also showcased by the skill with which he handles the twin strands of his biography, coiling the lives of Antony and Cleopatra around one another, until finally they become fused―MAIL ON SUNDAY He does a splendid job of putting their lives in context and forcefully reminding us of the most salient aspects of their story while dispersing the romantic fog that has clung to them―DAILY EXPRESS Goldsworthy tells this story of this dynasty with huge skill... In all, it is an exotic family story of incest, greed and assassination, whose collective impact is to prompt further surprise: that Cleopatra was not only beautiful but obviously smart―BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE.
