Far from the closeted intellectuals you might expect, these influential puzzlers have had extraordinary lives. Some are tragic, some awe-inspiring, but all are fascinating—like the puzzler who was arrested under suspicion of supplying secrets to the Nazis through his clues. The life story of each creator is offered along with an explanation of what makes their clues so fiendishly rewarding and a selection of the greatest puzzles from across their career. A Display of Lights (9)—in crossword parlance, lights is a word for "clue"—is both a great read and a collection of some of the greatest crosswords of all time. It's the perfect gift for lovers of cryptic crosswords everywhere.
