"A wealth of stories..well-researched." --Kirkus Reviews

"Detailed and chilling...Arnold gives firsthand accounts from those who witnessed and survived the Spanish flu's deadly grip while examining its impact." --Bookpage

"In her latest book, Catharine Arnold focuses on personal experiences to convey emotionally the horror and the uncertainty of this mysterious disease...lurid and pacey, Pandemic 1918 aspires to the page-turning fascination of a detective thriller." --BBC History Magazine

For The Sexual History of London

"Hugely entertaining...a delightful travelling companion through the centuries of the city of sin." --Jeanette Winterson, The Times (UK)

"A magnificent chronicle of sex throughout the ages...allows us to return to the city, book in hand, to excavate London's deep sexual terrain." --New York Journal of Books
