I just finished Ken Follett’s “Pillars of the Earth” about the construction of cathedrals around this time period. Fascinating story well told.
I bought a copy of “Pillars of the Earth” at K-Mart and they carded me. Had to prove I was over 18. (I’m way over 18.) The clerk said she didn’t know why. I’ve read the book. Lots of sex but it’s not “Fanny Hill”.
