Every day you struggle with the newspaper's crossword puzzle, but it always frustrates you with lots of "crosswordese"--those strange words like esne (an Anglo-Saxon laborer) that rarely occur in normal vocabulary but keep popping up in puzzles. These one hundred clever and challenging crosswords contain none of that, so you can enjoy yourself and still give your brain a workout. Come up with the answers to "Getz of music" (4 letters), "New Age token" (7 letters), "Coach Parseghian" (3 letters), and "cowed" (11 letters). The clues draw on your knowledge of geography, history, people, and culture, and you'll have to find synonyms, abbreviations, definitions, and more. Here's one to try out! Can you finish the entire puzzle? Answers: Stan; crystal; Ara; and intimidated.
