Mary McCarthy associated them with novel(5)I???S. Essayist coolly concealing names(8)C?N?O???(8)
M>McCarthy wrote Ideas and the Novel; 'coolly' with 'names' gives the essayist Connolly. However, these two answers intersect where the 'e' of 'ideas' crosses with the second 'l' of Connolly - please help

It doesn't seem possible that either could be anything else; surely it must be an error on the setter's part.

Same problem here. One corrrect answer has been logged on the Times site, and one with one error. I'm going to hang fire for a bit and see what turns up on the forums. There's obviously one version of the misprint, if that's what it is, which has been accepted as correct.

Now two correct. "CONNOLLY" must be right, so the "L" leaves only a couple of possible options, even if they both look wrong!
