City of Sin: London and its Vices - Catharine Arnold

Arnold is swiftly turning into one of my favorite "gossipy yet informative" history writers.  She's briskly witty and her descriptions ate brisk and vivid.  She quotes expertly from extensive contemporary accounts,   so there's lots of voices in the book.  It's a solid three point five now,  because it's not a serious book yet it IS very informative.
