Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight's 10x10 puzzle is by Chris Piuma and it's called "The Bagatelle; or, Nineteenth-century novels and other amusements." As the title suggests, this puzzle tastes of long sentences and used books.

If you like this puzzle, you might be interested to know that, in addition to editing Lil AVC X puzzles, Chris co-hosts an award-nominated podcast, "The Spouter-Inn", all about great books. They've recently done episodes on Ulysses, Mrs. Dalloway, and Harriet the Spy. Check it out at

Next week: Two exciting guest constructors, one publishing their very first puzzle!

With love,

Brooke, Chris, Enrique & the expanded AVCX crew | @avcxword | @lilavcx | @avcxcryptic | @avcxplus | @avcxtrivia
