Praise

“One of the most original and harrowing accounts of living through a virulent pandemic . . . as full of meaning about human suffering today as it was when it was written.” —The Daily Beast

“[A] classic of plague literature . . . Camus was inspired by this book in writing The Plague.” —The Jerusalem Post

“So grimly immediate . . . you can practically smell the death and decay.” —The Guardian

“A realistic account of the plague’s effects on [London]. Defoe’s novel still has the power to unsettle—like when he writes about families forced into quarantine due to an infected family member.” —Vulture

“Within the texture of Defoe’s prose, London becomes a living and suffering being.” —Peter Ackroyd
