Jasper Fforde's latest novel, The Woman Who Died a Lot, sees Thursday Next defending her beloved Swindon from a smite-happy deity, attempting to purge a non-existent daughter who's stuck in her head and fending off an army of synthetic Thursdays produced by the reliably nefarious Goliath Corporation.
