WHERE CHARACTERS LIVE WHEN YOU'RE NOT READING
Jasper Fforde in conversation with Sean Wilson
Even if you have never racked your brains over the thermodynamic impossibilties of simultaneous porridge pouring, you won’t want to miss this evening in the Well of Lost Plots with Jasper Fforde, one of the most wildly original writers in the English language. His internationally bestselling Thursday Next and Nursery Crime books inhabit a world where time and reality are endlessly mutable, and have been praised as “catnip to book lovers” by the New York Times. Join the conversation about where characters really come from and where they go for vacations, whether or not Shakespeare’s works are a gift from the future, how time travel actually works, where Godot has been and the growing influence of the Toast Marketing Board.
