Theodora: Actress, Empress, Whore
Stella Duffy

Theodora is one of my favorite figures of the ancient world. This woman devised a life that took her from a performer (read: prostitute) to Empress of Constantinople. In this volume, Stella Duffy shows all the passion of the real woman, weaving a story that entertains and ensnares. While not a gay book per se, Theodora’s affairs with women are an integral part of the story. This is the perfect not-quite-historical-fiction, not-quite-romance read. September 27. Penguin Paperback Original (us.penguingroup.com). —Review Angel Curtis
