Who is Cleo? What is she? Any number of different things, including Elizabeth Taylor, depending on who you ask. (And Angeline Jolie in the new movie version – Ed.)
Stacy Schiff’s terrific biography of Cleopatra has just been released in paperback, and the publisher has released this video to mark (ok, to market) it. The book was a bestseller in hardcover and e-book versions – if you haven’t yet read it I suggest popping over to BookCourt for the paperback. You can follow Stacy Schiff’s Twitter feed here.
There’s a school of thought in this household that the most likely place to find Cleo today would be the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. Who is Cleopatra to you? Where do you think she would turn up if she were around today? Discuss in the comments.
