Read The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Welcome to a surreal version of Great Britain, circa 1985, where time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem, militant Baconians heckle performances of Hamlet, and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, renowned Special Operative in literary detection, until someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature. When Jane Eyre is plucked from the pages of Brontë’s novel, Thursday must track down the villain and enter the novel herself to avert a heinous act of literary homicide.

    A big thank you to Lindley for hosting a fabulous evening, lots of delicious food, wine and company. The bobotie was delicious and I’m now a big fan of this dish as well as bunny chow. Have a fantastic Christmas in South Africa and look forward to our next meeting at the Mossy Well.
