A Dying Europe
If Britain's prospects feel uncertain now, what can we learn by looking back to another time of chaos and confusion? To Calais, In Ordinary Time is James Meek’s spellbinding new novel set in England in 1348, as the Black Death is about to kill half of northern Europe. It’s a linguistically astonishing, hugely rewarding book full of love and adventure. This morning, Meek shares a story that’s eerily resonant today.
