The fifth installment in Jasper Fforde's "New York Times "bestselling series follows literary detective Thursday Next on another adventure in her alternate reality of literature-obsessed England
Jasper Fforde has thrilled readers everywhere with his gloriously outlandish novels in the Thursday Next and Nursery Crime series. And with another genre-bending blend of crime fiction, fantasy, and top-drawer literary entertainmentis "Thursday Next: First Among Sequels," Fforde's famous literary detective is once again ready to make the world safe for fiction. Thursday Next is grappling with a host of problems in BookWorld: a recalcitrant new apprentice, the death of Sherlock Holmes, and the inexplicable departure of comedy from the once- hilarious Thomas Hardy novels, to name just a few--all while captaining the ship "Moral Dilemma" and facing down her most vicious enemy yet: herself. Thursday's zany investigations continue with "Our Thursdays is Missing." Look for the five other bestselling Thursday Next novels, including Jasper Fforde's latest bestseller, "The Woman Who Died A Lot." Visit jasperfforde.com for a ffull window into the Ffordian world
