To Calais, In Ordinary Time by James Meek

Although it took me a long time to get into this novel, I finally got completely hooked. A cast of unlikely characters meet on the road to Calais. The Black Death is also approaching. This novel reminded me of Shakespeare, especially with a play’s performance as part of the plot. But also because of the unique use of language, quirky characters, comedic moments, and looming tragedy.
