Weekly Book Giveaway: A Plague Year, by Edward Bloor
Rarely do we describe books about meth as "wordcandy", but we're giving this one a shot: this week's Book Giveaway pick is Edward Bloor's A Plague Year. (Apparently, the title comes from another cheery text, Daniel Defoe's 1722 novel A Journal of the Plague Year, about the Great Plague hitting London in 1665.) Our review should go up later today. As always, this contest runs Monday through Friday. . . .
