This week I’m reading…


To Calais, In Ordinary Time by James Meek (2019).

Historical fiction about a three people traveling from England to France in 1348, set against the backdrop of the Black Death.

Pretty easy to draw parallels between their lives and our own current experience of living through a global pandemic.

Blurb on the back:

A tremendous feat of language and empathy, this novel summons a medieval world that is at once uncannily plausible, utterly alien and eerily reflective of our own…set against one of the biggest cataclysms of human history.
