'Dazzling', 'brilliant', 'streetwise', 'sassy', 'audacious' - "The Emperor's Babe" has been hailed as the one of the most original novels of 2001. Meet Zuleika: sassy girl about town, hellraiser, bored ex-child-bride in Londinium, AD 211. In the place (and time) to be . .. through the bustling, hustling city, we follow Zuleika, feisty and precocious daughter of Sudanese immigrants. Married off to a rich, fat, absent Roman, she is stranded in luxurious neglect, until, one day 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.
