I'm rather sure that all three of Stacy Schiff's previous works have been nominated for some award or another. With a pedigree like that, you know that her latest biography is bound to be a must-read. Stripping away all the previous misconceptions about this fascinating queen, Schiff dazzles us with another Cleopatra: a canny, capable, and charismatic ruler working against the tide to preserve her nation. A riveting and compelling read. Recommended for all and any history buffs.
