Thomas Mullen will be at The Bookcase at 7:00 p.m. on Thursdeay, February 25 to read from, discuss, and sign copies of his new novel, The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers.
In Mullen's evocative new novel, the highly anticipated follow-up to his acclaimed debut, The Last Town on Earth, we follow the Depression-era adventures of Jason and Whit Fireson -- bank robbers known as the Firefly Brothers by the press, the authorities, and an adoring public that worships their acts as heroic counterpunches thrown at a broken system.
Now it appears they have at last met their end in a hail of bullets. Jason and Whit's lovers -- Darcy, a wealthy socialite, and Veronica, a hardened survivor -- struggle between grief and an unyielding belief that the Firesons have survived. While they and the Firesons' stunned mother and straight-arrow third son wade through conflicting police reports and press accounts, wild rumors spread that the bandits are still at large. Through it all, the Firefly Brothers remain as charismatic, unflappable, and as mythical as the American Dream itself, racing to find the women they love and make sense of a world in which all has come unmoored.
Complete with kidnappings and gangsters, heiresses and speakeasies, The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers is an imaginative and spirited saga about what happens when you are hopelessly outgunned -- and a masterly tale of hardship, redemption, and love that transcends death.
