Rome is me —Santiago Posteguillo
Everything Posteguillo writes turns to gold as soon as it hits the bookstores and the same is sure to happen with this new title. And it is that after touching the lives and works of such relevant characters in the History of Rome with his trilogies of Scipio, Trajan o julia domna, wife of the emperor Septimius Severus, how could one not be with perhaps the greatest and most well-known figure of that time?
So we go back to Roma, to the year 77 a. C, when the Senator Dolabella will be judged by corruption, but he has hired the best lawyers, he has bought the jury and, in addition, he does not hesitate to use violence against all his opponents. This is the way things nobody wants to be fiscal, but then unexpectedly a young patrician accepts the challenge to defend the people of Rome and challenge the power of the elites. Is about Gaius Julius Caesar.
From there, and surely again with the mastery that characterizes the Valencian author to recreate a universe of both historical rigor and enormous narrative capacity, we will get into that life of Julius Caesar that continues to be exciting no matter how well known it is.
