L4533: ‘Telling Lies’ by Somniloquist

Posted by Encota on 4 January 2019

I wasn’t aware of the theme this week but the instructions seemed to work clearly and very well.

The extra letters from the clues spelt out: “CUT OUT EXTRA WORDS THEN FOLD”.

In the left-hand side of the grid could be found the five extra words: VENOM, LOSES, NONE, OGRE and OWN.  Carefully cutting them out and folding the grid vertically at its centre-line then showed the characters ALBER-T ANGE-LO and BS – JOHN-SON, a book – Albert Angelo by B.S.Johnson – where, apparently exactly this process was used.  Interesting …

… I vaguely recall a David Bowie documentary from years back when he described a related technique for constructing lyrics, using scissors, paper and glue.  … Or did I dream it?  Hunky Dory, perhaps?  Or the Berlin years?
