‘If at first you don’t succeed, don’t try skydiving.’

In the case of Shades of Grey, there is rather a lot of setting up in the early part of the novel, but Fforde's sense of fun with wordplay and his lightness of touch with the romcom element are undeniably winning. Above all, it's a romance. Romance and humour. You can't get away from either in the human experience, so they have to be in decent books. This seems an extraordinarily simplistic way to look at every book, but part of Fforde's charm is that he genuinely seems unbothered by what other writers, critics and even his own publisher think.

He professes not to seek the company of other writers "I don't regard myself as part of a literary world" and says he largely ignores both editor and agent until a book is finished "I tend to tell them to leave me alone and then they just get a huge wodge of paper in the post one day". His readers, however, he is hugely committed to, becoming noticeably more animated when I bring up the fun he has with them, and ask whether he lays specific traps or treats for regulars. The wonderful thing about having a regular readership is that people know how I write, and I know they know how I write In my next book I am introducing a character called Red Herring.

Because this is a Jasper Fforde book, readers won't know if it is a red herring, or if it's the fact he's called Red Herring that is, in fact, the red herring.

It's this double-bluff feedback loop, reader-writer relationship that I enjoy immensely. You can play on it and the magic works that little bit extra. Some — myself included — find the punning a little tough on the palate, though. When I confess this to him, he remains chirpy. Having a character called Paige Turner in The Eyre Affair was a bad pun, so I made sure I never used both of her names together until the very end. Ha ha! The reader was punned by stealth!

As I mentioned, he is a very chirpy man.

Confident that he enjoys his connection with readers, and that he would take it in good grace, I set about asking him a few of the questions that my Twitter followers asked me to ask him Is he related to the author of popular women's fiction Katie Fforde, and if so, do they talk about writing? She is wonderful, even when I wasn't published she told me not to stop, to keep writing, that it would be terrific. She's totally normal as well. Which of his characters would he like to be and why? Because he's married to Thursday, and she would just be such a kick-arse wife.

All you'd want to do is support her. And she'd be loving you, which would be fantastic.

Why are there two 'f's in Fforde? For some reason, we added an 'f' at some stage, but we're not sure why. We suspect it was affectation. The 'real' Fords must call us the 'double fs'. I cannot imagine what might depress Jasper Fforde. And this in turn slightly depresses me: it's hard to believe in such relentless gaiety. But whether or not you choose to enjoy the games, the puns and the romance, it is fair to say that many authors could do with a slice of his pragmatism and lack of vanity.

And it is impossible not to admire his commitment to writing books that readers will honestly enjoy — as he tells me, a year-old at an event recently thanked him for "giving him a grandmother". The teenager admitted he had previously had nothing in common with his year-old grandmother, but now they share a love of Fforde's capers.

After a year of cynicism and panic in the world of books, Fforde is an anomaly — but it is still infuriatingly difficult not to like either him or his books. Living in a Green Sector as a Red had never endeared the Hue to my father. Although the spectrum was well represented in Jade-under-Lime, there was a predominance of Greens that tended to push a pro-Green agenda, and Dad was only a holiday relief Swatchman because he'd been pushed from a permanent position.

It was rather exciting, seeing him defy those further up the Spectrum'. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here. Want to discuss real-world problems, be involved in the most engaging discussions and hear from the journalists? Start your Independent Premium subscription today.
