Description
A deliciously doleful yearbook with 365 daily entries recording some of history’s worst ever days. A roll call of extremely unfortunate events from National Geographic, in a globe-trotting history encompassing macabre, shocking and amusing tales from Ancient Rome to 21st-century America. Discover a less than enthusiastic birth announcement by Charles Dickens in 1852; the revenge of a ‘Lord Minimus’ in 1644 when he received one insult too many about his stature; and the medical journal which enthusiastically recommended heroine as a cure-all in 1900. Michael Farquhar, a former editor of ‘The Washington Post’, wrote this gleefully dark post as a sequel to the bestselling ‘Bad days in History’. Dip into the pages or read each day for a daily dose of schadenfreude.
