Overview

Marketplace Product

‘I used to regret not being born Catholic because it meant I’d been denied the joys of self-flagellation. Then I discovered DA and he solved my problem.’ – Bill Leak, cartoonist, and anagram of Killable

’He’s the Sergeant Pepper of cryptic crosswords. A complete mindf**k.’ – Geoffrey Rush, actor, and anagram of Gruffy Heroes

Many a puzzle solver has battled against the devilish mind of long-time crossword maker and wordaholic David Astle, known to many as DA.

In Puzzled he holds out a helping hand to the lost and perplexed taking us on a personal tour into the secret life of words. Clue by clue, chapter by chapter, we step through a central puzzle, uncovering and unravelling word-secrets as we go. The Steve Irwin Fluke, the Swastika Accident, the Abracadabra Pyramid – hidden meanings, anagrams, reversals – all the Dark Arts are finally revealed.

More than a how-to manual, more than a memoir, Puzzled enlightens us about cryptics and delights in the quirky realm of wordplay. It is a book for word junkies everywhere.
