If anyone’s interested, at the minute I’m reading Daniel Defoe’s A Journal of the Plague Year – which is somewhat copyright expired and therefore free. On the bus this morning I was reading a charming anecdote about how the driver of a cart piled high with dead plague victims himself died of the plague while driving; this caused the horses to bolt and run through the streets, scattering putrefying plague-ridden bodies throughout the centre of London. It’s a laugh-a-minute I tells ya!
