About this book
Reputed to be the world's most difficult quiz - 'devised for intellectual torture'. Includes such brain-crushing questions as: Who was described as a withered little apple-john? What lovers corresponded as Florizel and Perdita? Which Slavonic language is spoken in a country whose national language is not Slavonic? Erk!
For 50 years "Guardian" readers have been stumped by the fiendishly difficult General Knowledge Paper set annually at Christmas for the pupils of King William's College, on the Isle of Man. This book presents a compendium of the GKP questions and answers from 1981 to 2010.
