Crossword puzzles plus literary trivia--what could be a better match for language mavens who love to play with words? These 50 great puzzles were constructed by fourteen of the top crossword writers in the business and edited by Matt Gaffney, himself a major puzzlemaker. Plus, they're lots of challenging fun. Enjoy such witty topics as "Authors I Have Red," "Sleuth Youth," "It's Greek to Me," "Exit Lines," "Grate Books," and "Poe Folks." The clues range from "Hemingway book about leaving the Red Planet?" (that question mark signals a "punny" answer) to "The Handmaid's Tale author."
