    How many letters wollie?

    And is that the exact clue, with "ease" in parentheses? And I hope the "anyone" is not a part of the clue...

    Oh no!! No trimming/modification allowed! Let's have the exact clue wollie - they're hard enough without the trimming.

    I'm with Gokul on this one. You have to find the whole clue and give it to us straight across. There's pretty much only one way to solve the one that you gave us, and it doesn't work.

    Well, i have worked out that it must be a novel written in 1939, with no
    ease, E's, rest? did anyone write a best seller in 1939 about any such, it
    would have to be well known or (different) some how.

    It is, who would have thought that a novel could be wrote without the use of *E*.
