Jasper Fforde - Shades of Grey
JASPER FFORDE will be signing Shades of Grey at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H on Monday 18th January from 1 – 2pm.
From the bestselling author of Thursday Next - a brilliant new novel about a world where social order and destiny are dictated by the colors you can see. Part social satire, part romance, part revolutionary thriller, Shades of Grey tells of a battle against overwhelming odds. In a society where the ability to see the higher end of the color spectrum denotes a better social standing, Eddie Russet belongs to the low-level House of Red and can see his own colour - but no other. The sky, the grass, and everything in between are all just shades of grey, and must be colorized by artificial means.
Stunningly imaginative, very funny, tightly plotted, and with sly satirical digs at our own society, this novel is for those who loved Thursday Next but want to be transported somewhere equally wild, only darker; a world where the black and white of moral standpoints have been reduced to shades of grey.
