I do know actually, but only because I devised and edited the book. The book was about seven writers coming together and collectively creating a work of fiction, taking the writing seriously but also having fun in the process. It would be against the spirit of the project if I revealed who wrote what, but what was amazing was that not one critic could get it right and in a competition with two hundred entries among ordinary readers nobody got it right and only one person got five right. It was interesting because most critics would have immediately said that they could tell the writers apart, but the book is about making people focus only on the writing as against the reputations.

Good luck with figuring it out and hope you have fun reading the book. Sorry I can't help, unless you have a few hundred thousand pounds in used notes in a plain brown envelope...
