This is me at the Pont du Gard in Provence a couple of years ago. While I was guest speaker on a cruise ship going up and down the Rhone I took the opportunity to revisit some old haunts as part of the research for my upcoming biography CALIGULA, The Mad Emperor of Rome. As I tell you in the book, Caligula probably influenced the building of the Pont du Gard. On the subject of the book, I’m delighted to say that New York Times bestselling historical novelist MARGARET GEORGE has just given me a very generous advance review of CALIGULA. To see it, go to the Caligula page in the Books section of this site. Thanks so much, Margaret!
