These puzzles - taken from the celebrated pages of The New Yorker magazine - offer more challenges per 'empty square' than the average crossword! Every cryptic has a twist, a little something extra, a double-dose of difficulty. That's because the clues all have two parts: a definition half and a wordplay half, with anagrams, reversals, containers, and lots of other word games built in. For example, here's a clue: 'Reportedly lost in fog. (4 letters).' Got it? It's 'mist' - a homonym for 'missed' and also a synonym for 'fog'. An introduction enlightens you on all the intricacies of solving cryptic crosswords, and of course the solutions appear at the end with tricks behind the clues explained. It may take a little practice to get the hang of these, but once you do, you'll be hooked for good!Biografía del autor:
