Jasper Fforde Book and Novel

Jasper Fforde - Author


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. Author Photo © Mari Roberts
