Feastby Randy Lee Eickhoff
Acclaimed historian and storyteller Randy Lee Eickoff returns to Celtic mythology with a modern translation of one of Ireland's most thrilling legends. Handed down by seanchai, who have sung this story as part of a boisterous oral tradition since the 8th century B.C., The Ulster Cycle was first written down in the 7th century by Medieval monks. From these illuminated manuscripts and the parchment copies that followed, came Fled Bricrend, the Cycle's most important tale, and one of the most exiting and vital mythos to come out of Ireland.
The Feast picks up where Eickhoff's last translation, the acclaimed novel The Raid left off.
