Jasper Fforde

Fiction

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20060621

Popular British comic novelist Jasper Fforde talks about his pun-filled detective novel satires of classic literature including The Eyre Affair and Something Rotten.  Revealing how hard getting published is, Fforde says that his first book was rejected approximately 76 times before finding an agent, and a legion of fans. He’s turning his comic eye toward children’s fairytales with The Big Over Easy, the first in his Nursery Crime series.
