Product description

Review

"Witty, enlightening, and just plain fun to read."
-- Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Delightful."
-- Los Angeles Times

"Hodding Carter has enough charm to fill a toilet tank, and I don't mean the new 1.6 gallon low-flush. No one else could make me laugh heartily while reading about the miraculous lead pipes of ancient Bath.... Got to love it all."
-- Mary Roach, author of Stiff and Spook

"Carter is unfailingly good company throughout this genuinely underground history."
-- Will Blythe, author of To Hate Like This Is to Be Happy Forever --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
