The Emperor’s Babe
Bernadine Evaristo, who won the 2019 Booker Prize for Girl, Woman, Other, has been exploring and demystifying ‘otherness’ for many years, in poetry and prose. The Emperor’s Babe, a novel in verse, was published in 2001. The Times included it on a list of the 100 best books of the decade. In it you’ll meet the unforgettable Zuleika, a black, beautiful, silver-tongued hustler making her way through the labyrinthine world of third-century Londinium. This is Roman Britain as you’ve never imagined it, but as it very well might have been.
