Join longtime queen of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner for a year of wonderful words and the stories behind them. From the real Jack the Lad to the literal story behind stealing someone’s thunder, from tartle (forgetting someone’s name at the very moment you need it) to snaccident (the unintentional eating of an entire packet of biscuits) in conversation with Alex Clark, Susie Dent will guide you through her brilliant linguistic almanac full of unforgettable stories, fascinating facts, and surprising etymologies tied to every day of the year. You’ll never be lost for words again.
