Tracy-Ann Oberman's 6 best books

Tracy-Ann Oberman is an English actor best known for playing Chrissie Watts in EastEnders and for performances in Doctor Who and other television shows, films, and plays.

One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
I, CLAUDIUS by Robert Graves

After I was taken to Rome as a child Imperial Rome became a passion. Claudius, seen as a bumbling buffoon, manages to survive all the assassinations and coups to become a very good emperor.

It’s a bit like a salacious News Of The World story.
Read about another entry on the list.

I, Claudius also appears on the Telegraph's lists of the 21 greatest television adaptations of novels and the twenty best British and Irish novels of all time, Daisy Goodwin's list of six favorite historical fiction books, a list of the eleven best political books of all time, David Chase's six favorite books list, Andrew Miller's top ten list of historical novels, Mark Malloch-Brown's list of his six favorite novels of empire, Annabel Lyon's top ten list of books on the ancient world, Lindsey Davis' top ten list of Roman books, and John Mullan's lists of ten of the best emperors in literature and ten of the best poisonings in literature.
