The Emperor's Babe is Bernardine Evaristo's unique lyrical portrait of Roman London

Meet Zuleika: sassy girl about town, hellraiser, bored ex-child-bride, black Roman in Londinium, AD 211. In the place (and time) to be . . .

Through the bustling, hustling city, its slum tenements and sumptuous villas, we follow Zuleika, feisty and precocious daughter of Sudanese immigrants made good. Married to a fat, rich absent Roman, she is stranded in luxurious neglect, until, one day, Septimus Severus, the Emperor himself, comes to town, bringing with him not just love - but danger . . .

Funky and funny, sexy and moving, this novel in verse is a triumph of imaginative writing - and of sheer lyrical and emotional vitality.

'A heroine of ancient times for the modern age . . . a glittering fiction whose words leap off the page into life. Brilliant'The Times

'Funny, engaging and daring'Independent on Sunday



'Exhilarating . . . wildly entertaining then deeply affecting'Ali Smith

'Adventurous, compelling and utterly original. You won't read another book like it this year'The Times
