Erik Agard’s New York Times crossword–Amy’s recap
Had the timer off nevertheless it felt perhaps tougher than the everyday Fri NYT? Erik’s a grasp of difficult cluing, so it wouldn’t be surprising.
Fave fill: WHITE GAZE, WATER SIGN, NO COMMENT, GATE-CRASH, GENDER EUPHORIA, SISTER ACT.
- 3d. [Cheek or backbone], NERVE. What a terrific trio of roughly synonymous physique components! A basic A(s)gardian clue.
- 28a. [Neopronoun with a nod to folklore], FAE. Hadn’t seen that as a pronoun, however for those who’re feeling particular fairy magic vibes, why not?
- 31a. [Something not to look after?], LEAP. Because you should look earlier than you leap relatively than afterwards.
Four stars from me.
