«Unputdownable... These histories from 2,000 years ago are riveting in their insight, their black humour and their sheer readability, give or take a few highbrow verbal flourishes. Matthew Dennison fleshes out their gaudy history with boisterous scholarship.»

Daily Mail

«Dennison's series of impressionistic pen portraits are compelling and imaginative.»

Sunday Times

«Matthew Dennison is one of those rare marvels, a historical biographer whose work has reached the bestseller lists... Each story is told with humour and personal interpretations of the facts. Then there's the glory of the language: Dennison is in love with the English language, and it shows.»

Independent

«The author's prose style - epigrammatic, swift, and spiced with humour - is like Tacitus in translation. Which is meant as a compliment. His relish for his material shines infectiously through his sentences.»

Thomas Hodgkinson, Spectator

«Dennison's approach combines thoughtful reflection and analysis with gossipy irreverence in a bewitching cocktail... hugely entertaining.»

Daily Express

«Gossipy and insightful, making for an enjoyable introduction to this power­-hungry crowd»

Financial Times
