A curiously delightful book--spontaneous, overflowing with a good, wholesome love of living even though life itself be hard. A continuous vein of humor runs through it, though many of the incidents in the hero's life are pathetic.
When Chris Seabranch is not on a treasure hunt, fleeing from aliens or conjuring up interesting scientific articles as a Danish science journalist, he likes to write fantasy books. Butterfly Islands is a great example of his storytelling skills, and was conceived during a 175 kilometer walk around Mount Blanc in France. As our Author of The Day, Seabranch chats about female pirates, 15 year olds and butterflies.
