Synopsis: Just in time for Valentine's Day, Stanley Newman's third volume of literary-themed crosswords is all about LOVE—50 original puzzles about 50 legendary literary romances spanning thousands of years.

Each puzzle boasts:
· A quote specifically about love from the puzzle's subject
· Plenty of general literature-related clues
· Fascinating trivia about the puzzle's subject

The wide variety of sources represented includes novels, plays, poetry, opera, myths, real-life literary couples, and more.

Besides the obvious (like Romeo and Juliet), the delightfully diverse—and surprising—list of subjects includes Lolita, Like Water for Chocolate, "The Owl and the Pussycat," Carmen, Porgy and Bess, Tarzan & Jane, Odysseus & Penelope, and Dashiell Hammett & Lillian Hellman.

About the Author: Stanley Newman edits Newsday's nationally-syndicated crossword, creates puzzles for BusinessWeek and is the coauthor of the best-selling 10,000 Answers: The Ultimate Trivia Encyclopedia. He runs tournaments, hosts cruises, and lectures at the Smithsonian about both crosswords and trivia. He has written or edited more than 95 books.
