FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jasper Fforde and his intrepid literary- detective heroine, Thursday Next, are back in the second installment of what promises to be one of the most talked-about series of the decade. If Thursday thought she could avoid the spotlight after her heroic escapades in the pages of Jane Eyre, she was sorely mistaken. The unforgettable literary detective whom Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times calls ‘part Bridget Jones, part Nancy Drew and part Dirty Harry’ has another think coming. The love of her life has been eradicated by the corrupt multinational Goliath, and to rescue him Thursday must retrieve a supposedly vanquished enemy from the pages of ‘The Raven.’ But Poe is off-limits to even the most seasoned literary interloper. Enter a professional: the man-hating Miss Havisham from Dickens’s Great Expectations. As Miss H’s new apprentice, Thursday keeps her motives secret as she learns the ropes of Jurisfiction, where she moonlights as a Prose Resource Operative inside books. As if jumping into the works of Kafka and Austen, and even Beatrix Potter’s Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, weren’t enough, Thursday finds herself the target of a series of potentially lethal coincidences, the authenticator of a newly discovered play by the Bard himself and the only one who can prevent an unidentifiable pink sludge from engulfing all life on Earth. The inventive, exuberant and totally original literary fun that began with THE EYRE AFFAIR continues with Fforde’s magnificent new adventure, the second installment in what is sure to become a classic series of literary fantasy. Jasper Fforde is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Eyre Affair (available as a Penguin paperback). He recently traded a varied career in the film industry to write and live in Wales.
