Reviews

"Everything you always wanted to know about perishing in London." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"Deeply pleasing. . . . Entertainment of the most garish and exquisite kind. . . . A Baedeker of the dead." --"The Times"
"Enthusiastic, good-humored and constantly engaging." --"Daily Telegraph"
"It may not be the cheeriest of topics, but Arnold writes exquisitely, with a respectful and assured style that makes descriptions of 16th-century plague pits seem vital and relevant, and never dismisses the personal tragedies behind the numbers of dead. And it is strangely comforting, in this city of immigrants and new arrivals, to think of the generations, of so many ancestors lying beneath our train stations, churches and concert halls a we go about our business." -- "Guardian"
"Catharine Arnold's lively stiff survey is good on the Black Death and great on the Victorian age." -- "The Scotsman"
