Mystery Book Club: 'The Eyre Affair' by Jasper Fforde
Published on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 - 9:15am
The July selection of the Chevy Chase Library Mystery Book Club is The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. Masterpiece Theatre meets James Bond in The Eyre Affair, the first novel in Jasper Fforde’s cheeky sleuth series featuring a book-loving, gun-toting, wit-slinging heroine named Thursday Next.
In Thursday’s world, an alternate version of 1985 London, literature rules popular culture. Audiences enact and participate in Richard III for Friday night fun, thousands of visitors make literary pilgrimages to gawk at original manuscripts, and missionaries travel door-to-door, heralding Francis Bacon as the true Bard.
The book can be checked out at the branch or you can download the audiobook here.
The club will meet on Wednesday, July 18 at 7 p.m.
Hope to see you there!
