Just published: A Short History of Disease


My Book of Lurgies, A Short History of Disease, is out this week. A social history of afflictions from the Year Dot, it includes all the big ones - malaria, TB, plague, HIV, Ebola - and some lesser known maladies. Madness, war and capitalism make cameo appearances. Available from all good bookshops, plus the usual online tax-dodging barrow boys. You can buy a copy here.
