A literary quiz book with a difference, mirroring the format of the lively and popular quizzes Gary runs in the Betsey Trotwood pub in London and elsewhere. The book includes a lot of multiple-choice questions, some amusing answers, clever red herrings, little-known facts about authors and some much-loved Say What You See picture rounds.

"fiendish, entertaining and informative"

Pre-lockdown, former bookseller Wigglesworth ran popular quizzes in The Betsey Trotwood pub in Farringdon, London, as well as Blackwell's annual Christmas quiz. Since the pandemic hit, he has successfully taken them online (@GPWigglesworth). His fiendish, entertaining and informative first book contains a huge and inventive variety of book-related questions, from his Say What You See picture round, to "RomeNo" or "JuliYess" (real or made-up Shakespearean insults). Good clean fun.
