WAM July 30-31 Edmund Burry
In Trinity, in the late 1700`s, he was like a Michaelangelo - a doctor, a surgeon, a priest, a judge, a customs officer. Some considered him the Pillar of Trinity - John Clinch.
Edmund Burry was struck by the real-life story and decided it needed to be told. But he didn’t want to create a dry history, so he decided to novelize the tale of John Clinch.
I asked Ed to tell me the real story of John Clinch, the 18th century doctor in Trinity, the one that convinced him to write the historical novel Clinch - The Pillar of Trinity.
