Deborah Harkness’s five favorite otherworldly reads

Deborah Harkness named her five favorite otherworldly reads for The Daily Beast. One title on the list:
The Eyre Affair
by Jasper Fforde

This wonderful book will have you laughing out loud as heroine Thursday Next polices the line between fiction and reality to keep characters in the books where they belong. Set in a parallel universe where dodos are kept as pets, England is still fighting the Crimean War and Wales is an independent socialist state, this book is the first in a delightful series.
Read about another book on the list.

--Marshal Zeringue
