At the center: the tumultuous life of Seneca, ancient Rome's preeminent writer and philosopher, and his student Nero, Emperor of Rome. And controlling them both, Nero's mother, Julia Agrippina the Younger: Roman empress, great-granddaughter of the Emperor Augustus, sister of the Emperor Caligula, niece, and fourth wife, of Emperor Claudius... Dying Every Day weaves together the life and written words, the moral struggles, political intrigue, and bloody vengeance that enmeshed Seneca the Younger in the twisted imperial family and the perverse, paranoid regime of Emperor Nero, the last and most detestable of the Caesarean family, whose descent into madness saw five family murders, the revolt of Boudicca in England, the Fire of Rome, and a savage purge that destroyed Rome's supreme minds during the Senate's golden age.
