Could some really kind person out thereplease just put me out of my misery by parsing
7d) Nothing in Franzen's volume is idle (6)
I have L?I?E? and it has to be LOITER as in the verb, idle, and O is the nothing, but apart from Jonathan Franzen (I presume he's the one?) being American and thus spelling litre differently I can't find any reference to liter in his oeuvre. I need closure!!
