About the event
For our walk and talk in November we have selected...
by ZOE GILBERT
Herne the hunter, mischief-maker, spirit of the forest, leader of the wild hunt, hurtles through the centuries pursued by his creator.
A shapeshifter, Herne dons many guises as he slips and ripples through time - at candlelit Twelfth Night revels, at the spectacular burning of the Crystal Palace, at an acid-laced Sixties party. Wherever he goes, transgression, debauch and enchantment always follow in his wake.
But as the forest is increasingly encroached upon by urban sprawl and gentrification, and the world slides into crisis, Herne must find a way to survive - or exact his revenge.
'Mischief Acts is a deeply lyrical, century-spanning polyphony of voices; a dazzling new take on an ancient myth, reminding us of the wildness within. I adored it.' - Kerry Andrew
'Weaving together prose and poetry, myth and history, the past, present and future, it's a work of extraordinary ambition, brilliantly realised.' The Observer
Also by Zoe Gilbert, and highly recommended by Seven Fables is her book of short stories, Folk.
We look forward to walking with you in November...
