The dictionary used was the Diamond English Dictionary, published by Diamond Books, published in 1988 and reprinted in 1994. It is now out of print.
Elixir is a revolution in fiction - the first and only novel to include all the words in the dictionary*!
By randomly selecting a page of the dictionary and creating a short chapter including all the words on the page, Naomi Styles has created a hilarious and highly alliterative story guaranteed to boost your word power!
And does it make sense? Of course it does! The story follows the adventures of vertically-challenged Elgin who leaves his demeaning job as an elf in a creche to travel to the West Country in search of the elixir of life, only to find that a power-hungry Inuit entomologist is trying to destroy humankind by ridding it of its food supply.
Wacky, surreal, fast-paced and original, Elixir has the power to reduce fully-grown men to paroxysms of hysteria over such things as muffins and muesli.
Now with fantastic cover images by Sholto Walker, Elixir is NOW AVAILABLE to buy in paperback. Click here to order your copy!
