Welcome to a land where a banker may be a flower and where both are probably a river, where Oxford is not a university but a shoe, and where low tars are found in submarines rather than outside pubs. This collection of 100 crosswords will test the newcomer to the "Financial Times" cryptic crossword as well as the experts who are disappointed if they don't manage to finish it on the train between Sevenoaks and London Bridge. Colin Inman, editor of the "FT" crosswords for the past thirty years, provides an introduction to the compilers and a brief guide to the workings of the cryptic crossword clue. There are both plain and themed puzzles, including works by Cinephile, Cincinnus, Dante, Mudd, Dinmutz, Falcon and many other favourite setters (and remember: between these covers, a setter can be a dog as well as 'I' or 'me').
