Bernardine Evaristos tale of forbidden love in bustling third-century London is an intoxicating cocktail of poetry, history, and fiction. Feisty, precocious Zuleika, daughter of Sudanese immigrants-made-good and restless teenage bride of a rich Roman businessman, craves passion and excitement. When she begins an affair with the emperor, Septimius Severus, she knows her life will never be the same. Streetwise, seductive, and lyrical, with a lively, affecting heroine, The Emperors Babeis a strikingly imaginative historical novel-in-verse.

Bernardine Evaristo was born in London to a Nigerian father and English mother. She is a former poet in residence at the Museum of London.
