Dazzlingly funny and imaginative, Jasper Fforde's books have won him the affection of readers, reviewers, and-dare we say it-booksellers alike. Fans can breathe a sigh of relief because Thursday Next-or at least one of her-is back. At a time of great unrest in the BookWorld, only the ace literary detective can avert a devastating Genre War—thing is, Thursday has vanished. Now the written Thursday must answer the call, save the Bookworld, evade capture, and find the actual Thursday! With a clockwork Butler in tow, and Men in Plaid as well as her Designated Love Interest in pursuit, she must reluctantly agree to journey up the mysterious Metaphoric River for answers.
About the Author
Praise For One of Our Thursdays Is Missing: A Thursday Next Novel…
—Los Angeles Times
“There is no denying Fforde’s supersized imagination, linguistic agility and love of books, Books, BOOKS.”
“Fforde’s diabolical meshing of insight and humor makes a ‘mimefield’ both frightening and funny, while the reader must traverse a volume that’s minefield of unexpected turns and amusing twists.”
“One of Our Thursdays is Missing is filled with passages [in] which geeky humor jostles with genuine insight about the current state of fiction. . . . [T]ake a joy ride with the passionate reader who wrote this novel.”
“Forget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure.”
“A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb”
