Editorial Reviews

Review

''Jaunty, lively, and filled with references to contemporary cultural history, making this work a well-researched page-turner. Readers will get an intense dose of history, written in a not-hard-to-swallow style.'' --Library Journal

''Wright brings a reliably sane and bitingly funny voice to a topic we never realized we wanted to know so much about: historically devastating plagues! Read this. . . .so that you can soon amuse your friends with the best dinner party conversation ever.'' --NYLON, '50 Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2017'

''Jennifer has a rare ability to make history funny, titillating, and relevant, in way I've not come across before. Her passion and enthusiasm jumps off the page and makes her most recent book Get Well Soon: History's Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them, a most compelling and important read.'' --Angela Ledgerwood, Lit Up

''Wright doesn't simply state gross-out facts or hold up solitary individuals as heroes. Instead, she highlights the issues that impacted our understanding of and response to medical nightmares. Leadership, religiosity, power structures, and science collide...Written with Wright's signature humorous tone, this is a grim but engaging look at some of humanity's most feared foes.'' --Bust
