Here is a major new recording and the riveting account of Ancient Rome in all its madness and debauchery.
The politics of empire-building and the hypocrisies, back-stabbings, and corruptions of Rome's first family come to light. First published in 1934, the book retains a marvelously modern and often comic tone, and is written in the form of Claudius' autobiography. This is gripping stuff, read by one of our finest actors, who also starred as Claudius in the classic television series.

Derek Jacobi revisits his famous role with humor and subtlety. Wonderful actor, wonderful book. Even at 5 hours 9 minutes, it felt much too abridged!
