Set against the backdrop of the first economic speculative bubble in modern history, the famed 'tulip mana,' The Black Tulip follows the story of Cornelius de Witt, a tulip farmer who is seeking to grow the elusive black tulip, which will net him a grand prize by the Dutch Royalty. After the murder of his brother, Cornelius is thrown into prison, and finds himself entangled in a web of political drama and intrigue, as Duman masterfully blends fact and fiction and crafts a story that remains, at its heart, politically relevant even today.
