Brian Jackson arrives at university in the mid-80s with a burning ambition: to make it onto TV's most popular general knowledge quiz. But as soon as he embarks on this mission, he finds himself falling hopelessly in love with his beautiful team-mate, the gorgeous and charismatic would-be actress Alice Harbinson. When she fails to fall for his slightly over-eager charms, Brian realises to capture her heart he's going to have to win the quiz show at any cost. Because everyone knows what a woman really wants is a man with a comprehensive grasp of general knowledge. Written by One Day author David Nicholls, Starter for Ten is a novel about love, class, growing up and the difference between knowledge and wisdom. In 2006, it was successfully adapted for a film on the big screen starring James Mcavoy.
