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 related to the novel 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 on Tuesday)
