Description
In this engaging and entertaining collection of trivia, framed as a series of challenges, David Gentle brings together tantalizing, brain-twisting questions whose answers—honestly, no really—are just on the tip of your tongue. From historical events to the films of Hitchcock and the habitués of Hogwarts, the book asks readers to name as many items as possible from a list, to solve the hidden links between specific groups of questions, and to provide the members of a given group—and the questions become more difficult and arcane as you go along. Gentle, a self-confessed factaholic, had vowed to write just such a book since losing to his sister in a trivia contest on a childhood car trip.
