Jasper Fforde in conversation

The one and only Jasper Fforde —beloved author of comic classics like The Eyre Affair—takes the stage to launch you into the brand new world of his upcoming novel Early Riser.

In a world where 99.99% of the population hibernates, a select few nurse the world through the cold winter months. When an outbreak of viral dreams starts to kill people, an investigation kicks off to find out what's really going on behind the snow-draped landscapes and slumbering minds. From pre-hibernation treats of Wagonwheels and Tunnocks Teacakes to The Gronk who (if it even exists) feeds off the shame of the unworthy, while folding linen and humming Rodgers and Hammerstein hits, this new standalone novel is rich with the flights of fancy, tight plot and whimsical humour that Fforde fans have come to love.

Hear Jasper in conversation with—well, Jasper—as he single-handedly serves you a slice of his one-of-a-kind riotous imagination to celebrate the release of his new book.
