Zahran, archaeologist and novelist, combines both skills in this unusual biography of the legendary Palmyran queen, Zenobia. The first chapters are told in Zenobia's voice, speaking powerfully from the afterlife. Each of these chapters is footnoted and followed by an explanatory note. The final chapters look at the legends, both Eastern and Western, that grew up around the queen. Zahran treats all sources as suspect, the Western stories tales told by a victor, the Arabic ones laced with elements from traditional fantasy. Yet, she examines them all for hints of the reality, combining them with archaeological evidence. The result is a compelling portrait of a remarkable women told in a manner that will attract readers beyond academia. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
