Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
Cleopatra: A Life

Diane Phelps, January 19, 2012

This book provides the real story about Cleopatra, not the one from the movies. If you like to know how people lived during certain time periods, this book tells all about Egypt during Cleopatra's reign. Fascinating stuff. The author has a very nice writing style, making interesting, sometime humorous, commentary on Cleopatra's family. Includes good maps of the world as she knew it and photos of statuary and coins that show images of her.
