Description

In a third-century desert settlement on the fringes of the Roman Empire, a new wife becomes fascinated by a cult being persecuted by the Emperor Diocletian. In 1922, Christian, a young artist, travels to Weimar to begin his studies at the Bauhaus. And in 1970s London, Duncan uses his inheritance to establish the country's first gay bookshop, whatever the neighbours think and despite persecution from the police.

Professional reviews

"The new novel from Man Booker Prize-shortlisted Philip Hensher – his most ambitious and daring yet The Emperor Waltz is an absorbing echo-chamber of a novel, innovative and compelling, that explores what it means for us to belong to each other. Praise for the author: ‘Hensher is gifted with a great virtuosity and a relentless intelligence' GUARDIAN"
