Beginning with unfinished books and the cliff-hangers left by Charles Dickens and Raymond Chandler, this book brings together the stuff they didn't tell you in English Lit. Among the topics are drunks and drug addicts (notably Dylan Thomas and Coleridge), literary put-downs such as Truman Capote on Kerouac's On the Road ('That's not writing, that's typing'), animals in fiction, literary hoaxes and books that changed the world.
