Of course I now want to read Ron Chernow’s “Alexander Hamilton”

But my current nonfiction is “Rubicon: Last Years of the Roman Republic,” by Tom Holland.

And then I want to read the follow-up, “Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of the House of Caesar,” which covers Augustus through Nero — the same period as the TV series “I, Claudius.”

Because I read books slowly, Hamilton will wait a while.
