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

Join David at Frankston Library on Saturday 11 November at 1pm.
