Appeared on “Hay-on-Sky” 27 May. The fifth in this madcap series starring the wonderful Thursday Next, an agent with her work cut out trying to save our fictional, but very real, heroes. To try and explain these books is impossible, they are seriously original. If you are not a fan we suggest you start at the beginning with The Eyre Affair; it is wacky, wonderful, inventive stuff with folk nipping in and out of books in an alternative world very close to ours. All we would really like to say is, you have got to read them to believe them.



Synopsis

First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde

A serial killer is loose in the Bookworld. Meanwhile, Goliath plan on taking literary tourists on holiday to the works of Jane Austen. Thursday Next alone realises the true intent of Goliath's incursions into fiction. To fight against this, she teams up with someone she can't get along with - the written Thursday Next as it's no time to be picky.


About the Author

Jasper Fforde
Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring out of the window and sucking the end of a pencil. He lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation.
 
Fellow novelist KERRY REICHS on JASPER FFORDE
The Thursday Next and Nursery Crime series are a quirky treat for any bibliophile.  Fforde draws readers into hilarious and surreal alternative universes, such as a 1985 Britain where dodos are a common pet and the Goliath Corporation controls the world.  Favorite fictional characters have active lives behind their pages, and literary factionalism is more influential than politics.  Full of clever entertainment and sly references, The Eyre Affair is a tour de force of the small but highly entertaining science fiction literary detective thriller.  I view it as one of my greatest accomplishments that I was referenced as an “Out World” writer in First Among Sequels.

    RT @ragingbibliohol: Found a beat-up copy of @jasperfforde's "Great Samuel Pepys Fiasco"! But it won't open - locked, I guess. http://t.co
