Surviving Vesuvius - Daisy Dunn

AD 79. Above the bay of Naples, Vesuvius is spewing thick ash into the sky. Historian Daisy Dunn tells the extraordinary story of one of the most famous and devastating volcanic eruptions of all time. She compellingly interweaves one of the ancient world’s greatest catastrophes with a vivid recreation of Roman Italy through the eyes of Pliny the Younger, the survivor whose eyewitness account recreates the moment-to-moment unfolding of the disaster in gripping detail. “Rome’s most famous bad-boy poet comes alive as never before. Stunning” (Boris Johnson).
