AOT #262: Jasper Fforde Podcasts One of Our Thursdays Is Missing
Jasper Fforde, author the bestselling Thursday Next series, the Nursery Crime series, and the novel Shades of Grey, reads from and discusses his eagerly awaited new installment featuring Thursday Next, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing. Fforde’s exuberant return to the fantastical BookWorld opens during a time of great unrest. All-out Genre war is rumbling, and the BookWorld desperately needs a heroine like Thursday Next. But with the real Thursday apparently retired to the Realworld, the Council of Genres turns to the written Thursday. Once again Fforde has a field day gleefully blending satire, romance, and thriller with literary allusions galore in a fantastic adventure through the landscape of a frisky and fertile imagination.
