The clues are all cryptic and therefore involve some lateral thinking and general knowledge. If you’ve never done a cryptic crossword before, they aren’t as hard as you think, especially if you can do normal crosswords; try these websites for a quick introduction: https://inews.co.uk/inews-lifestyle/how-to/how-to-do-cryptic-crosswords-90889 or https://www.dummies.com/games/crossword-puzzles/solving-cryptic-crosswords-for-dummies-cheat-sheet-australian-edition/
The answers are all characters from well-known books but not always the main character. The numbers in brackets at the end of each clue are the number of letters in each word of the answer; for example (3,4) means that the first word of the answer has three letters and the second word four. The letters in the brackets are the initials of the author of the book(s) in which the character appears.
