Literary confusion:

Ghastly fat whores jog nasty hero

We are looking for the name of a famous author and the title of his or her perhaps most celebrated work. And all you have to do to find them is unjumble the letters in the above sentence.

Lest we mislead, we should like to make it clear that apart from having the same letters, there is no intended connection between the answer and the meaning of the sentence itself.

A prize of the Chambers 21st Century Dictionary will be awarded to the sender of the first correct answer we open on 21 August. Answers to: Perplexity, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL.

Answers and the winner's name of the Perplexity competition that appeared on 26 July are held over until next week.
