The world's most fiendishly difficult literary puzzle
Illustrated by Tom Gauld, acclaimed cartoonist and author of Goliath. A famously difficult puzzle novel from the Observer's legendary crossword composer. The prize of £1,000 for the first reader to solve the puzzle within a year of publication was awarded to the actor and comedy writer John Finnemore. Finnemore's win was covered by the Guardian, the Telegraph and the London Review of Books among others. The project was supported by Neil Gaiman and re-issued with help from the Laurence Sterne Trust.
