With questions ranging from the deliciously unexpected (Who's the only person in literary history both to have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize and to have played a girlfriend of Ken Barlow's in "Coronation Street"?) to the reassuringly canonical (Dickens's fourth novel was the first he'd published not to have the main character's name in the title. What was it?), this fabulous compendium of literary knowledge is the perfect gift for all book lovers.

Author Biography - James Walton
James Walton is the television critic for the Daily Telegraph and has been the writer and presenter of Radio 4's books quiz, The Write Stuff since 1998. (Sadly, his Radio 4 pop quiz All the Way from Memphis didn't last quite as long.) His first book was The Faber Book of Smoking, which was published to great critical acclaim back in the far-off days when you could still smoke in pubs.
