Another extract from the Smoking Years. After falling in love young Cecilia starts a revolution which will change the way we live – or breath.

The Smoking Years is the story of the creature that is ‘the smoker’. How did this species arrive on our shores? Why did it become so sexy – and so dominant in our lives? Was there really a time when everywhere people could be found shrouded in a thick blue cloud?

Enlisting the help of Barry Cryer, Stuart Maconie, and others, The Smoking Years tells the unnatural history of a quite remarkable – and now threatened – creature. Warning: smoke-filled nostalgia may damage your health.
