London Bridge in Plague and Fire: A Novel



" London Bridge in Plague and Fire is a brilliant cleaving of historical fact and Blakeian imagination. David Madden has written his masterpiece." -Ron Rash, author of Serena

"David Madden's London Bridge is a the spellbinding story of the life and times of a world icon. Distinguish yourself and buy it now!"-Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump

"In London Bridge in Plague and Fire David Madden creates his own fictive historical tapestry, bringing to life the complex medieval world of Old England. But Madden filters his vision through the voice and eyes of a seventeenth-century poet-chronicler. The result is a deep, rich narrative of a particular place across the centuries, unfolding and rewarding the reader with the true romance of history."-Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek and Lions of the West

"One of the many colorful characters in David Madden's wild but accurate chronicle-novel says, `The Bridge is, after all, a thought turned to stone.' By dint of forcible imagination, careful research, and devotion to his subject, the author has retransformed the stone to passionate thought. London Bridge in Plague and Fire is a strong book faithful to a great tradition." -Fred Chappell, author of Dagon and Midquest
