Limiting himself to one fact per personage, Frank Key presents an abbreviated, yet thoroughly engrossing biographical dictionary. Between Lascelles Abercrombie (an English poet challenged to a duel by Ezra Pound) and the Rumanian spirit medium Eleonore Zugun, we learn that Michael Tippett called his fridge ‘Bernard Levin’, that Alfred Hitchcock was terrified of eggs, and Robert Southey, otherwise a poet, once invited William and Mary Wordsworth to dinner and served roast owl.
