The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde 2001
Signed First American Edition (signed "Jasper" on Title Page)
Like New in Mylar/Brodart cover

Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair, published in the U.S. in 2001 quickly became a cult classic. Part Mystery, part Science Fiction, The Eyre Affair is a funny alternate reality what if story. What if you could travel into and out of the words created by authors? What if Jane Eyre was kidnapped from the original manuscript? What if dodo birds never went extinct?

This first novel in a series of Thursday Next episodes created an interesting and hilarious world, comparable in ways to Douglas Adams in style, and quickly became one of my favorites.
