Caligula the cheery, vengeful existentialist
My desktop encyclopedia dispatches Caligula in one swift sentence as a "cruel and insane Roman emperor who promoted his horse to the office of consul". History associates him with torture, megalomania and incest. In his fifth imperial chronicle, Allan Massie sides with Camus in positing Caligula as an existentialist who laughed darkly into the bloody void opening up before him and the empire over which he briefly ruled. Our narrator is a nobleman, Lucius, commissioned to write Caligula's biography by the Empress Agrippina — wife of stuttering Claudius, mother of Nero and sister of the late, "by few lamented" Emperor Gaius.
Caligula by Allan Massie
He has lived in the Scottish Borders for the last 25 years, and now lives in Selkirk. Born in Singapore , where his father was a rubber planter for Sime Darby , Massie spent his childhood in Aberdeenshire. He was educated at Drumtochty Castle preparatory school and Glenalmond College in Perthshire before going on to attend Trinity College, Cambridge where he read history. He has been The Scotsman's chief fiction reviewer for a quarter of a century and also regularly writes about rugby union and cricket for that paper. He has previously been a columnist for the Daily Telegraph , the Glasgow Herald , and was the Sunday Standard's television critic during that paper's brief existence.
