  • Description

After the happy head scratching over his Somerset Quiz Book, and by public demand, it’s high time for Charles Wood to become quizzical again and do his level best to tease and entertain once more in this Somerset Quiz Book Mark 2.

Full of helpful hints and nudges, and with 200 questions ranging from arty-farty to local verbiage, and from sporting prowess to pure buggerbiddle, this new Somerset tester will earn further degrees of enlightenment.

Ideal for pub quiz cribbers, this is, above all else, another essential refresher for natives whose history, geography, and just about everything else, leans toward ciderous befuddlement in a county to be proud of.

Delve under the surface, peer at the small print of history, and Charles Wood is the first to admit that Somerset is a little bit special. This is the power of understatement from a chap whose passion for scribbling snippets over his many years as a documentary filmmaker, writer and radio broadcaster shines out from these quizzical pages.

Charles Wood gave up the legal profession yearning for the artistic life. For the past twenty years he has just about managed to avoid wearing a tie to work or getting grubby. Instead, he has preferred to eke out an existence in the Somerset custom of self-employment.

Author of the acclaimed Charles Wood’s Somerset Quiz Book, How to Survive in Somerset, Surviving Another Somerset Year, Exmoor Amour and Bats, Pads and Cider, Charles has also found time to be full-time dad of four, a successful documentary filmmaker, an illustrator, a writer of fairy tales, a part-time college lecturer, a parttime school teacher, an occasional broadcaster on BBC Somerset Sound, and a director of Somerset Film and Video. He now admits to his enjoyment of cricket and poddling through the lighter side of life’s rich tapestry relieved that he has never been bankrupt.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 0 85704 119 7, paerback, 248x174mm, 96 pages. Published October 2011.

Exmoor AmourExmoor Amour - £12.99
Charles Wood's emotion spring had begun to flow again. It was the ‘Ex’ in Exmoor that made things so disconcerting. Long ago he ceased to refer to the place as ‘it’ but as ‘her’. And now, like an old flame, memories of her still burned happily after a lengthy separation. And then, on the other hand, not so happily – like a grockle fire that makes charcoal of heather and gorse. Such are the foibles of the heart – of amour ..... Other formats available: Amazon Kindle
