Review:

The London of an earlier period - 1665 - is brought vividly and pungently back to life. (Cannock and Rugeley Chronicle)

Gruesomely compulsive reading. (Colin Waters, Sunday Herald)

From the Back Cover:

Defoe's classic reconstruction of the Great Plague of 1665 is the most compelling account of natural disaster in all literature. Narrated by an imaginary 'Citizen who continued all the while in London', A Journal of the Plague Year scans the streets and alleyways of the stricken capital in its effort to record the appalling suffering of plague victims. At once horrifying and movingly compassionate, it is a nightmare vision of the modern city laid to waste.
