A Dark and Stormy Monday, Plus Books

We’re feeling the first effects of Hurricane Sandy here in Boston, and I’m feeling the first effects of a wicked chest cold. Whenever I’m sick, I’m reminded of how much I like when novels mention characters who get a cold or the flu. It’s so common and it’s almost never mentioned. I remember reading the beginning of The Young Unicorns by Madeleine L’Engle, which mentions Suzy Austin having a cold, and I loved that. Why don’t more fictional characters get the sniffles or a sore throat?
