  Margaret George, 'The Memoirs of Cleopatra'
The Memoirs of Cleopatra: A Novel. By Margaret George. Griffin, 1997. Historical fiction from the author of Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles and The Autobiography of Henry VIII. The emphasis here is on Cleopatra, but George's most indelibly rendered character is arguably Caesar. The whole thing weighs in at 976 pages: think of it as immersion. This book is available at a discount from Amazon and, in Europe, from Amazon UK.
