In March 2020, writer and political activist Shereen Pandit began a daily diary. It lasted for 100 days – the approximate length of time for which London, where she lives, was locked down due to the CoVid-19 pandemic. Her first-hand account of those dark days during which the UK first joined the global war on the new virus is both deeply personal and overtly political. The diarist allows the reader to follow her on a roller coaster journey through the highs and lows experienced as the crisis unfolded, moving between past and present, between humorous tales of everyday life and sharp-tongued political diatribe. Of added interest are the well-chosen quotations from poetry, songs, films, interviews and books, all re-visited during lockdown, and used to inform and colour both the writing and the grey experience that lockdown at first threatened to be.
