"Who's the Blonde That Married What's-His-Name?"

New from Penguin: Who's the Blonde That Married What's-His-Name?: The Ultimate Tip-of-the-Tongue Test of Everything You Know You Know--But Can't Remember Right Now by Carol Boswell and Lenore Skenazy.

About the book, from the publisher:

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon meets The Book of Useless Information via Mad Libs in this fun new twist on classic trivia games.

“WHO’S THE BLONDE THAT MARRIED WHAT’S-HIS-NAME whose last name sounds like a BIRD, but then they split, and she was in that SUPER-HIP MOVIE that totally revived the career of the DANCING SCIENTOLOGIST before he played a woman in that MUSICAL by the FUNNY BALTIMORE ECCENTRIC?”

The answer’s on the tip of my tongue!

Everyone’s been there—groping for a name or a title and then, in desperation, using roundabout phrases and weird associations in a frantic effort to remember the ENGLISH LADY who wrote all those mysteries, like the ONE ON THE TRAIN with that BELGIAN DETECTIVE and whenever you play that BOARD GAME with the knife in the conservatory and the gun in the billiard room and that COLONEL, it feels like you’re in one of her books?

These “tongue-tipper” moments affect everyone. Now they can be put to good use with this innovative pop culture game that will help trivia buffs and useless-information fans remember all the things they didn’t even realize they’d forgotten.
