If Walls Could Talk

An Intimate History of the Home

By Lucy Worsley
Narrated by Anne Flosnik / 9 hours 43 minutes

Why did the flushing toilet take two centuries to catch on? Why did medieval people sleep sitting up? When were the two "dirty centuries?" Why did gas lighting cause Victorian ladies to faint? Why, for centuries, did rich people fear fruit?

In her brilliantly and creatively researched book, Lucy Worsley takes us through the bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. She covers the history of each room and explores what people actually did in bed, in the bath, at the table, and at the stove—from sauce stirring to breastfeeding, teeth cleaning to masturbation, getting dressed to getting married—providing a compelling account of how the four rooms of the home have evolved from medieval times to today.
