The author of The Eyre Affair delivers the long-awaited sequel to Shades of Grey, as two citizens of a world whose hierarchies are based on the colour spectrum strike out on a quest looking for answers.

Imagine a world where your position in society depended on what bit of the colour spectrum you could see. This is the world inhabited by Eddie Russett (red, middle-level) and Jane Grey (monochromatic, lowest in society). Eddie and Jane must negotiate the delicate Chromatic politics of society to find out what the 'Something that Happened' actually was, how society got to be this way, and crucially, is there Somewhere Else beyond their borders - and if there is, could there be Someone Else, too, someone whose unseen hand has been guiding the fortunes and misfortunes of the nation for the past 500 years?

“Worth the wait!”

New books by Jasper are always a delight, but this is one I've been chomping at the bit for ever since finishing Shades of Grey some 10 odd years ago. Fortunately, it manages to live up to the anticipation!... More

“Fforde does surreal better than anyone.”

I have to say I love most things that Fforde writes, this is where you are graded to the colours that you can see, Red, Green, Yellow. Eddie Russett is a Red so middling, he is involved with Jane who is a grey and a... More
