Thirty years after The Meaning of Liff became an international bestseller, comes Afterliff: John Lloyd and John Canter's hilarious dictionary of familiar objects and experiences 'that there should be words for but aren't', compiled using recycled names found on signposts.
John Lloyd has a broadcasting background. As a radio producer he devised The News Quiz and To the Manor Born before moving to television to start Not the Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image, Blackadder and, of course, QI. Jon Canter is a novelist and scriptwriter who has written for Lenny Henry, Rowan Atkinson, Richard Wilson and Dawn French, among others. His novels Seeds of Greatness, A Short Gentleman and Worth are published by Vintage.
