    After two rollicking adventures through Western literature, resourceful literary detective Thursday Next definitely needs some downtime. And what better place for a respite than in the hidden depths of the Well of Lost Plots, where all unpublished books reside? But peace and quiet remain elusive for Thursday, who soon discovers that the Well is a veritable linguistic free-for-all, where grammasites run rampant, plot devices are hawked on the black market, and lousy books—like the one she has taken up residence in—are scrapped for salvage.

    What made the experience of listening to The Well of Lost Plots the most enjoyable?

    Like all the Thursday Next books, the Well of Lost Plots is filled with humor, absurdity , intelligence, literary puns and literary references that are profoundly entertaining to anyone who loves books, words, and reading. The social commentary disguised as humor is brilliant.

    I highly recommend this and all the Thursday Next books.


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    Emily Gray brings a great deal of wit to her performance and gives life to a broad range of crazy characters. Her voice is lovely as well.

    Topanga Canyon is home to two couples on a collision course. Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacker lead an ordered, sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: He is a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor. Mexican illegals Candido and America Rincon desperately cling to their vision of the American Dream as they fight off starvation in a makeshift camp deep in the ravine.

    What did you love best about The Tortilla Curtain?

    This is a thought-provoking story about a poor Mexican man (Candido) and his wife, and a rich white Californian (Delaney) and his wife that contrasts their lives and struggles. What Delaney and his wife see as difficulties are in sharp contrast to the very real struggles faced by Candido and his wife, America.
