Tom Holland, whose acclaimed body of work contains translations of Homer, Herodotus and Virgil, is a writer known for capturing the immensity of history but not letting his readers become mired in its expanse.

In Rubicon, Holland retold the story of the fall of republic of Rome, Julius Caesar’s crossing of the eponymous river and his march on the capital. Dynasty is a rich study of the first Imperial dynasty. From lofty Augustus and bloodthirsty Caligula to reclusive Tiberius and cunning Nero, Holland’s deft prose evokes the incredible character of the family that transformed Rome.
