Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter CareyRead about another conflagration on the list.
John "Parrot" Larrit grows up in 18th-century Devon, where his father is a printer, producing revolutionary pamphlets and sheltering a currency forger. Destined to be a wanderer to distant (American) lands, Parrot sees the printworks and his father's life destroyed in a vividly described fire. As the flames rise, troops arrive and the boy flees across the moors.
Parrot and Olivier in America is on Mullan's list of ten of the best cases of seasickness in literature.
