About this item
In his sharply observed new book, Peter Stothard reflects on his experience covering Margaret Thatcher's inner circle of advisors—including David Hart, Frank Johnson, Sir Ronald Millar, and Lord Woodrow Wyatt—for the Times, while interweaving a biographical portrait of the Greek tragedian Seneca. The Senecans is a wistful story of loss and change, whose concerns range from virtue of self-restraint, to the Stoic view of death, to the relationship between politics and art. The result is nothing short of exquisite.
