This is an omnibus edition of John Sutherland's three collections of literary puzzles, "Is Heathcliffe a Murderer?", "Can Jane Eyre be Happy?", and "Who Betrays Elizabeth Bennet?". Investigating a variety of anomalies, enigmas, and conundrums such as "why does Robinson Crusoe find only one footprint?" and "where does Fanny Hill keep her contraceptives?", Professor Sutherland explores the questions readers often ask and critics rarely discuss. His forensic skills focus on authors from Defoe and Fielding to Wells and Woolf, relishing in particular the 19th-century novelists, Austen, Collins, Dickens, and the Brontes.
