Beird Waker, the celebrated poet, finally won a Booker for his thirteenth anthology of poems. In the post event party, you are in the circle surrounding the poet when Miss Gee, another guest, asks him innocently, "Do you actually remember the order in which your books were published?" This one liner sends the poet into a monologue:

"Aah, let's see.. I got the Booker for "Figments", which, as you know, is my thirteenth book.. but the first was a book called "Candy Floss", which, if I may say so, appears rather puerile when I read it now.. "Bubbles" was right after "Silence", but way before "Kingdom" . "Horsecarts" was after "Durian" but before "Kingdom" again. "Echo" and "Reverberations" were next to each other. "Mindreading" came just after "Reverberations" and just before "Glenfiddich", but even Glenfiddich was before "Kingdom" for sure.

"Oppression" was my bestseller, but sadly it wasn't the first book. I wish it was, it came a close second, but by then the market already had a perception about me.

"Elephant Song" and "Echo" had 2 books between them. "Silence" and "Elephant Song" had as many books between them as did "Bubbles" and "Durian". But, "Bubbles" was definitely published before "Elephant Song"."

Can you help the much bewildered Miss Gee with the correct order of the books?


1 Candy Floss
2 Oppression
3 Silence
4 Bubbles
5 Elephant Song
6 Durian
7 Horsecarts
8 Echo
9 Reverberations
10 Mindreading
11 Glenfiddich
12 Kingdom
13 Figments
