Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde
I was challenged by a Guardian journalist yesterday to do a Booksellers Breakfast based on his favourite author Jasper Fforde. It wasn’t that hard to do; I just moved breakfast into our literature room, added an old Tonka toy car and a decorated green smoothie. All that was needed was a cup of black coffee in a mug that celebrates one of the novels used by Fforde in his fantastically funny romp of literary detective fantasy staring Thursday Next.
Some Instagrammers may know Jasper for his photographs – he has a massive following – but he is also the writer of this bookworld series that was loved by Terry Pratchett and is often a natural next stop in the universe for Discworld fans. Jasper Fforde is one of our Hay heroes as he also lives here and has also appeared at this year’s Hay Festival.
