Product description

Review

'Taking us by the hand, Emily Cockayne leads us through the streets of early modern London - Manchester, Bath and Nottingham, too - and shows us a series of Hogarthian prints come to life.' --Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian

'To read Hubbub is to be transported back to that sense of childlike wonder in everything gross and revolting ... One of the many delights of this jolly, anecdote-laden history is that, just when you think it can't get any worse, it does.' --Melanie McGrath, The Evening Standard

'...a thoroughly entertaining read, one whose greatest pleasurers lie in the extraordinary accumulation of incidental detail to be found in its teeming pages.' --Andrew Holgate, The Sunday Times

Review

'Cockayne spares the reader nothing, from bad breath ... to eyebrow dandruff ... entertaining and full of interesting detail.'
