A literary quiz full of quotes that will challenge, cheer and enlighten book buffs.
Which bestselling novelist wrote about a tumble at the seaside? Do you know the poet who penned lines in praise of frogs? And who had strong opinions on April?
A well-kept secret of the literary world for over a hundred years, the fiendishly addictive Nemo's Almanac quiz is now available in book form for the first time. Each chapter will put your knowledge to the test as you search for the origins of quotes on subjects from breakfast to bonfires, and from sunshine to snow.
Featuring the work of everyone from Aldous Huxley to Zadie Smith, Nemo's Almanac is a quirky gem of a quiz, which will tantalise, entertain and enlighten whether enjoyed alone or with friends. And if that tip-of-your-tongue feeling doesn't transform into a solution, the answers in the back will send you on fresh journeys of literary discovery.
Includes a short history of the quiz from former Nemo's Almanac editor Alan Hollinghurst.
