One of the most celebrated historical novels and told as an autobiography, I, Claudius chronicles the life of nobleman Claudius. Burdened by physical infirmities and a stutter, Claudius stands by the wayside, observing the rise and fall of many Roman emperors. Rich with accurate detail, this compelling novel presents a fly-on-the-wall view of the complex, madly indulgent, and politically charged world of Imperial Rome and concludes with Claudius' unorthodox ascension to the throne.
