Format: Kindle Edition
In recent years, I have been reading a lot of what the publishing business refers to as " micro- histories ", i.e. where history and social changes are seen through the prism of a single commodity, e.g. cod, salt or bananas. I thought that Steve Penfold's The Donut would be of this genre, alas it was more a dry business book. Now and then, the author had a good pun, but overall the book was not especially fun.
