Joan Walker narrates the first modern biography of Cleopatra Selene, the only daughter of Cleopatra VII of Egypt and Mark Antony of Rome. Walker's delivery is crisp and bright, her tone affecting something between a university lecturer and a popular documentary narrator. The historical material presented is from secondary or tertiary sources, as well as educated speculation, so Walker's phrasing is not amiss. What the text lacks in documentation, Walker more than makes up for in her delivery; the overall effect of a favorite professor chatting informally with students makes what could be a dry text enjoyable and approachable. The lack of maps and other illustrations is felt but is not a serious detriment. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
