Typhoid Mary | Anthony Bourdain
post image

Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary was an asymptomatic carrier of the typhoid #fever. Ostracized in her time due to lack of understanding how bacteria can spread even when said person does not have symptoms.

Cinfhen I found these type of books equally fascinating and terrifying 2mo

A great blend of fiction and history. It‘s been years since I read this one, but I‘m a sucker for anything that involves the plague. #fever #movember

Author of the gag inducing classic The Hot Zone released a follow-up earlier this year. When I explain The Hot Zone to people they typically run away between the description of #fever & skin sloughing. I haven't read the tagged book yet, might save it for the next time I'm feeling slightly under the weather to put things in perspective.

Bookzombie I started it and had to return it to the library because of holds. What I read was equally gag-inducing. I need to put it back on hold. 🙂 2mo

Cinfhen Still haven‘t read this author 😬 2mo
arlenefinnigan @Cinfhen obv it's very football/'soccer' specific but I think you could get just as much out of reading this as autobiography/social history 2mo
TrishB Great pick 👍🏻 2mo
