As indicated eslewhere, the first of a shorter blog on Quixote puzzles. Will try to concentrate on a small number of clues focussing on the trickier ones and those I liked the most. Happy to explain others if asked.
A little harder than normal. Solving time: 29 mins
* = anagram
8 PAR ODIST My favourite clue
12 FIFE My last to go in. that is very loud in short = IE FF (music). (ieff)* with the anagram indicated by ‘nasty’
13 REST HARROW Nice to work out a new word from the wordplay.
17 (BUN) G
20 C (AIM) AN
21 SILENT (listen)* Excellent misleading definition.
