Jasper Fforde and Thursday Next: The First Among Sequels

Author Photo: Jasper FfordeIn the fifth installment of Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series, our beloved heroine is found fourteen years after she pegged out at the 1988 SuperHoop, grappling with a host of new problems in the BookWorld. The council of Genres is trying to broker a peace deal between certain antagonistic genres: Racy novel has been recklessly placed between Ecclesiastical and Feminist, a recalcitrant new apprentice, the death of Sherlock Holmes and the inexplicable departure of comedy from the once-hilarious Thomas Hardy novels are among the things that Thursday must deal with in Thursday Next: The First Among Sequels. Additionally, Thursday confronts a stupidity surplus back in Swindon along with a myriad of domestic problems such as a rebellious sixteen year old son, a brilliant daughter, and discovering the secrets to a good marriage. In this captivating volume, Thursday must confront her most vicious enemy yet: herself. The famous literary detective once again makes the world safe for fiction.
