‘He’s the Sergeant Pepper of cryptic crosswords.’ Geoffrey Rush

Some of us are word junkies. Some see words within words: where we simply see celebrate others see Crete and Elba; where we see Geoffrey Rush they see Gruffy Heroes. David Astle should know. He loves words and celebrates them on a daily basis. In this book he takes us on a personal tour into the secret life of words.

More than a how to, more than a memoir, Puzzled is a book for all word junkies. It enlightens us in the art of cyptic crosswords and delights in the quirky realm of wordplay.
