Shades of Grey (Flipback)

Author(s): Jasper Fforde

General

Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm. Hundreds of years in the future, after the Something that Happened, the world is an alarmingly different place. Life is lived according to The Rulebook and social hierarchy is determined by your perception of colour. Eddie Russett is an above average Red who dreams of moving up the ladder by marriage to Constance Oxblood. Until he is sent to the Outer Fringes where he meets Jane - a lowly Grey with an uncontrollable temper and a desire to see him killed. For Eddie, it's love at first sight. But his infatuation will lead him to discover that all is not as it seems in a world where everything that looks black and white is really shades of grey ...

Product Information

'Full of brilliantly inventive wordplay and quirky fabrications' -- Mail on Sunday 'Fans of the late Douglas Adams or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' -- Herald 'SHADES OF GREY has something of a flavour of Terry Gilliam's Brazil...but the novel is much gentler than Gilliam's savage madcappery, and Fforde's world is more old-fashioned public school than bureaucratic nightmare' -- Guardian 'Full of colourful characters and amusingly bizarre plot twists... SHADES OF GREY is a clever and enjoyable read' -- SFX Magazine 'There are distinct shades of Orwell's 1984' -- Daily Express

Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring out of the window and sucking the end of a pencil. He lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation.
