Description

David Astle is Puzzled at Frankston Library

Clue by clue, chapter by chapter, David Astle’s Puzzled meanders through the maze of a cryptic crossword, showing you the dark secrets and wondrous tricks of wordplay. ‘He’s the Sergeant Pepper of cryptic crosswords,’ says award-winning Australian actor Geoffrey Rush.

He’s the author of Wordburger - a quick-snack guide to cryptic crosswords for kids or rookies in general, as well as the time-travelling mind-trip called Riddledom. His other wordy hits include Cluetopia, plus the ultimate manual-cum-memoir, Puzzled.

On TV you can catch his regular word spots on News Breakfast, looking at Hinglish, Trumpish or whatevs. And on radio, David is a frequent fill-in host with ABC Radio Melbourne, plus his biweekly Word Magic with Nicole Chvastek on ABC Drive Victoria, unlocking language and more.

As crossword maker in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Wordplay columnist with Spectrum, David Astle is a full-time word nerd.
