Jesse Bullington brings The Folly of the World

TONIGHT at Tattered Cover on Colfax Avenue: Author Jesse Bullington writes historical fantasy informed by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the darker parts of European folklore (and fact). "On a stormy night in 1421, the North Sea delivers a devastating blow to Holland: the Saint Elizabeth Flood, a deluge of biblical proportions that drowns hundreds of towns, thousands of people, and forever alters the geography of the Low Countries. Where the factions of the noble Hooks and the merchant Cods waged a literal class war but weeks before, there is now only a nigh-endless expanse of grey water, a desolate inland sea with moldering church spires jutting up like sunken tombstones. For a land already beleaguered by generations of civil war, a worse disaster could scarce be imagined." Bullington will be here to read from and sign his new novel The Folly of the World (Orbit), a compelling tale with a surreal twist which gives readers a taste of rebellion, violence and political machinations in the darkest corners of the fifteenth century.
