Thursday Next, First Among SequelsLarge Print - 2007
Thursday Next grapples with a host of new problems in the BookWorld: a recalcitrant new apprentice, the death of Sherlock Holmes and the inexplicable departure of comedy from the once-hilarious Thomas Hardy novels. The Council of Genres is trying to broker a peace deal between certain antagonistic genres: Racy Novel has been placed between Ecclesiastical and Feminist, and they are all at each other's throats. Back in Swindon, the government is reporting a dangerously high stupidity surplus, the Stiltonista Cheese Mafia is causing trouble for Thursday and the literary detective scene isn't what it used to be. And Thursday shoulders the burden for the Acme carpet business, which is both a front for SpecOps and a real business for the underemployed force. At home, Thursday's idle sixteen-year-old son would rather sleep all day than follow his destiny as a member of the ChronoGuard, the force that regulates time travel. And when things get really bad, Thursday must once again have her wits about her as she travels to the very limits of acceptable narrative possibilities to rescue the reading experience from almost certain destruction.
