The Memoirs of Hadrian
One of the best books I have read in the last 2-3 years. An uncommonly wise and illuminating meditation on age and decay, not to mention a thoroughly convincing depiction of an era. Yourcenar’s writing is so subtle and so effective that the reader very soon begins to read this as autobiography, rather than as a historical novel.
