A feminist fantasy inspired by the true story of the Empress Dowager Cixi of China.

Under the reign of Queen Aglaia, the people of Suffragette City have lived in peace and harmony. But all is thrown into chaos when the Empress Cixtisis, ruler of neighboring Chinchinia, kidnaps all of the men of Agalaia’s queendom in order to castrate and enslave them. Can Aglaia outwit the Empress and bring back her men before it's too late? 

Cartoonist Anne Simon's eagerly anticipated sequel to The Song of Aglaia is another brilliant work of allegorical fantasy with a feminist spin, told with a singular verbal and visual wit.

Press Highlights:

"Simon’s fierce, dangerous The Song of Aglaia was one of the finest and subtlest works of 2018. How nice it is to see her expanding that universe of weird critters in this new book, based on the reign of the Chinese empress Cixi." — Paste
