A new edition of the brilliant literary puzzle sequel, exploring conundrums in classic fiction
John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus at University College London and an eminent scholar in the field of Victorian fiction, author of many works including The Longman Companion to Victorian Fiction. He has also written the bestselling popular titles Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre be Happy?, and such scholarly jeux d'esprit as Curiosities of Literature.
Sutherland is not simply a sleuth, but a sympathetic alternative author; less pedant, in fact, than poet * Sunday Times *
