Amusing comedy in this little story of the stage in America, the refuge of an American girl who has lost her fortune and broken her engagement in London. Dialogue in the most up-to-date slang and wit. (Title in the U.K.: Jill, the Reckless.)
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.
