Sarah Wise – The Blackest streets – of London

I am quite excited. I have a new book by Sarah Wise to read. I have not even read anything about it, even though I do have this new book in my hand.

I have read a previous book by her,  the Italian Boy. I will tell you more about this in a minute. I have also read a second book, Lunacy, Liberty, Mad Doctors  … which I did not even realise was by her! Call me simple, I have this book on my desk, and only just realised my complete ignorance, what a wally I am!

Back to the Italian Boy, this book I have read twice. I was first introduced to it by a young doctor who wrote about the Anatomy Act of 1832  as part of their degree course. My interest was the numbers of old London pubs visited during the story telling, and I love a story about Old London, as I said, I like to keep things simple.

I am very excited to read her (Sarah wise) new book on my holidays shortly. I will post some feedback at a later stage. I can already predict it being absolutely brilliant.
