    Covering such inscrutable characters as Heidegger, Montaigne, Kahlo and Levi-Strauss, the authors have chosen 250 names that are often dropped into intellectual conversation and provide information about who these people were and what they achieved. Arranged under headings such as Creative Traumas, Dipsomaniacs, the Vatican Says No and Surprise Bestsellers, the book will allow you to follow highbrow chatter and also avoid embarrassments such as mistaking Rimbaud for Rambo, or Georg Lukacs for George Lucas.
