Don’t try to pin down Jasper Fforde. The Wales-based author, known best for his Thursday Next series, happily jumps from crime thriller author to sci-fi guy to literary commentator – in a single book. His latest novel, Shades Of Grey, ($32.50, Penguin) is set in the future in Chromatacia, a place ruled by what he calls a Colortocracy, where red rules, and protagonist Eddie has colourful ambitions. Absurd, mysterious and inventive, Fforde’s books are always entertaining.
