Starter for Ten
On this page:
"Starter for Ten" by David Nicholls is a novel first published in 2003 about the character Brian Jackson and his first year of university, his attempts to get on the Granada Television quiz show University Challenge, and his tentative attempts at romance with Alice Harbinson, another member of the University Challenge team. The title is taken from an opening question to a round on the quiz show worth ten points, known as the teams' 'starter for ten.' Because this reference might be lost on American readers, it was originally released as A Question of Attraction when it was published in the United States.
