Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde
Literary detective Thursday Next's fourth adventure has her searching obscure western novels for a rogue Minotaur, battling the Goliath multinational corporation for the return of her husband, entertaining Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, on his first visit outside of BookWorld -- all while dodging assassination attempts and worrying about the outcome of a professional croquet match that may lead to Armageddon.
If you haven't yet read any of Fforde's satirical alternate-history fantasy series, I suggest that you start at the beginning with The Eyre Affair. May you find them as hilarious as I do.
