Listener No 4554: Duck by Vismut

Posted by Dave Hennings on 31 May 2019

This was Vismut’s first, so nothing to say on prior work. If it got your thumbs-up, you’ll know what it was all about. But if you think I’m going to publish this blog without you-know-what, think again — far too difficult, I’m afraid.

As it was, it was all about La Disparition, a story about a group looking for a missing companion, Anton Vowl (probably a chum of Francis Consonant). Anyway, it was soon obvious from row 7, LA DISPARITION, what was lacking from this crossword’s grid. Sadly, introduction and cluing did not conform, but that was probably asking too much.

Finally, A VOID in row 1 was struck out, and ADAIR, translator for you and I (!) in row 13, changing to La Disparition‘s original author.

Thanks for a bit of fun, Vismut.

Ooh, look, this blog is lipogrammatic! [Bravo, Ed.] — D’oh!
