Giovanni’s Toughies are not normally that much harder than his back-page puzzles and that applies today. This is pretty much on a par with his Cryptic last Friday, largely because even if you don’t know a word (as I didn’t 22d) the wordplay will normally lead you unerringly to it. It does have some very clever and enjoyable clues.
