An Evening With Jasper Fforde!
Wednesday 1st August 18:30 - 20:30 at Manchester - Deansgate
Come along to hear Jasper Fforde, one of Britain’s most thoroughly original writers, discuss his new novel, Early Riser, and the underlying themes which make his writing so distinct.
For his new novel, Jasper has created an extraordinarily rich and Ffordian new world, where, every winter, 99.9% of the human population goes into hibernation, protected by an elite corps of Winter Consuls. For five months a year while people sleep the Winter Consul are the law.The main character in the book, Charlie Worthing, is a novice, apprenticed to infamous Winter Consul Jack Logan. Logan has warned his new recruit about the horrors of Winter, but nothing can prepare Charlie for investigating a viral dream in Sector Twelve, a remote region in the middle of Wales. They say there are no heroes in Winter, and Charlie is about to find out why.
Jasper’s writing is an eclectic mix of comedy, SFF, thriller, crime and satire. His books are packed full of jokes, silliness, wild creativity and imagination, earning him an unusually dedicated following. After 20 years in the film industry his first novel The Eyre Affair hit the New York Times bestseller list in 2001. Starring literary detective Thursday Next, The Eyre Affair introduced Jasper as a major talent with a uniquely inventive mind.Since then Jasper has written a further twelve novels over several bestselling series.
