The Emperor’s Babe by Bernardine Evaristo

Category: Tags: ,

KLondinium, AD 211. Zuleika is a modern girl living in an ancient world. She’s a back-alley firecracker, a scruffy Nubian babe with tangled hair and bare feet.


The Emperor’s Babe by Bernardine Evaristo


Life as a teenage bride is no joke but Zeeks is a born survivor. She knows this city like the back of her hand and she knows how to get by. Until one day she catches the eye of the most powerful man on earth, the Roman Emperor, and her trouble really starts.

Silver-tongues and merry-eyed, this is a story in song and verse, a joyful mash-up of today and yesterday. Kaleidoscoping distant past and vivid present, The Emperor’s Babe asks what is means to be a woman and survive in this thrilling, brutal, breathless world.
