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.
With ten separate quizzes, each containing a variety of rounds, and subjects that range from literary feuds to inadvertant double entendres in classic literature, Sonnets, Bonnets & Bennetts takes you from Charles Dickens to Jilly Cooper and back again. It also provides plenty of extra and often astounding information in the answers.
Use it to host or play your own quizzes or read it cover to cover to impress your friends and family with your literary knowledge.
