http://schema.org/description

  • "British writer James assays the impact of the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic on a disparate lot of Londoners in her ambitious debut novel. Told through the overlapping perspectives of an omniscient narrator and the protagonist, a London undertaker, the novel probes the street-level, personal toll of a contagion responsible for perhaps 100 million deaths worldwide. In October 1918, as WWI ebbs, Dr. Thomas Wey falls dead in a London street while trying to post a letter to local health officials."
