Sunday Diversion: Classic Novel Jumble

First it was a crossword, then character anagrams, and now it’s time for this week’s Sunday Diversion: a classic novel jumble.

Here’s how it works:

1. I give you a cryptic clue about the answer, which is a play on the title of a classic novel.

2. I give you a series of jumbled words and a clue for each. You then unscramble them.

3. Each unscrambled word contains a couple of letters of the solution. [The letters that go into the solution are bracketed]

4. Once you have all the letters, you then unscramble them to figure out the solution.

Alright, here we go. (Answer next Sunday)
