Tonight is Guy Fawkes’ Night. I’m not sure whether we are going to see any fireworks this year – they’re usually on after my kids’ bedtime and my daughter is possibly too little. We’ll see.
A little while ago, I read a book about the Gunpowder Plot by Antonia Fraser.
It is a very good book – quite easy to read but not “light” so you feel smart for reading it. It describes the plot but also goes into the history and politics of the time – something I really like about all of Antonia Fraser’s books.
