I loved the sound of this book from the moment I heard about it and was thrilled to find it in paperback when I was in Sydney earlier in the year With such enthusiasm of course I had to read it right away but I don t think it was due to high expectations that I finished it feeling largely untouched Theodora is the fictionalised account of an historical figure Theodora who grew up a child actress and therefore prostitute in Constantinople in the sixth century a period commonly known as Byzantine Rome or the Byzantine Empire a continuation of the Roman Empire founded in Constantinople Istanbul the capital of modern day Turkey by the Emperor Constantine he who is famous for converting to Christianity and giving that previously heathen religion legitimacy Theodora in Stella Duffy s story is a talented actress not classically beautiful but sensual and with an ambitious heart After she and her two sisters Comito and Anastasia are sold to the theatre at a young age following the death of their bear taming father she is trained in the arts of singing dancing acrobatics and other performing arts and at twelve is sold to a man for the first time an inescapable fate for these actresses who because they are whores are not allowed to marryAt seventeen Theodora meets Hecebolus a young handsome and ambitious man assigned the post of Governor of the Pentapolis five cities at the northern tip of Africa west of Alexandria Invited to go with him as consort never wife Theodora doesn t need much persuading despite the advice of her friends in the theatre She s determined to find someone high up in the church who can absolve her of her past and allow her to marry high up and for that she needs to be in a high position herself She takes with her a friend and minor actress as lady s maid and companion Chrysomallo who had little stage presence but a beautiful singing voice and beauty to match It s only a matter of time before Hecebolus and Chrys become lovers forcing Theodora to strike out on her own into the desertTheodora does in fact realise her ambition and becomes a legitimate empress as the title leads us to expect but that s where the story ends It tells the story of how Theodora came to that place which is interesting but nothing of what comes after note while looking for other reviews to link to below I learnt that Duffy is planning a second book that continues Theodora s story That was one disappointment and perhaps the expectation came from the biography feel to the novel you expect to get a person s life story you can t help itAnd that s the other thing that I didn t care for I m not a reader of biographies I find them hard to get into and they just can t engage my imagination or my sympathies very well and while this book was fiction like many novels that deal with people who were once alive and breathing it suffers from a kind of biographical noose Clearly authors take artistic licence with their subject matter they have to and there s nothing wrong with that But the way they tell the story the structure and style of the narrative has a distinctly biographical flavour to it It could be the omniscient narrator that creates that particular distance or maybe the habit of telling rather than showing that s prevalent in such stories I ve randomly picked a passage as an exampleThings were much harder for Anastasia As Theodora said their little sister was simply too sweet Two sweet to work half a dozen men a week and take their money willingly using it to further herself to lift herself out of the brothel that was her backstage life and into a nice little apartment with a sea view and just one or two regular suitors Instead she d fallen in love with a pallid Lycian boy from the stables keeping them both poor by turning down offers so often that in the end the offers ceased to come and she and the stable boy lived on what little they could earn from legitimate work p58There s nothing wrong with the writing the grammar or structure or pacing I just don t care for the style I felt constantly at a distance the whole way through and while I admired Theodora as a strong intelligent woman I never came to care for her And I wanted to I was fascinated by this historical period this world and I wanted to delve into it and into Theodora s imagined life But it s a novel of omniscient narration interrupted by neat lively dialogue and it lacked a distinctive voice Theodora s voice perhaps and failed to bring the world fully to lifeI am grateful for the map of the area at the time especially because so much has changed over the centuries While I did like the story I can t find anything to be enthusiastic over I got only glimpses into life in Constantinople glimpses that left me hungry for and largely unsatisfied and the side issues of governance and the laws against prostitutes marrying for example forcesell girls into it and then blame them for it don t you love it were too briefly explored I love engaging with a novel reading between the lines picking up on subtle hints and themes deducing and analysing and so on Duffy didn t leave me anything to do here and that really disappointed me
