Jasper Fforde is a British novelist unlike any you have ever read. He is a literary experimentalist of the first order who has carved out a special niche for himself within the literary world. His first novel The Eyre Affair was published in 2001 and followed by a series called Thursday Next about a literary detective of that name. He is unfailingly inventive, and clever, and fun to interview. But then what would you expect from a young man who owns and flies his own DH 82 Tiger Moth airplane. On the Frumkes Show Jasper discusses his life and the publication of his latest book Shades of Gray.
