A Fiction Match Game

The directions for this game are simple.  Ten book titles are listed on the right.  Ten authors are listed on the left.  The idea is to match the book to the author.  Just remember that authors such as Leo Tolstoy and Ruth Park have written many books.  If Leo Tolstoy is listed, don’t necessarily expect to see ‘War and Peace’ or ‘Anna Karenina’.  If Ruth Park is listed, don’t necessarily expect to see ‘The Muddle-Headed Wombat’.  The correct answers can be found in the first comment for this post.

         1.   Lorrie Moore                             A.    The Englishman’s Boy

        2.  Arthur Phillips                             B.   Norwegian Wood

        3.   Fay Weldon                                 C.  Saint Jack

        4    Siri Hustvedt                              D.   This is my Daughter

        5.   Paul Theroux                              E    Prague

        6    Guy Vanderhaeghe                   F    How the Light Gets In 

        7.   Haruki Murakami                      G.  Who will Run the Frog Hospital ?

        8.   Edward P. Jones                        H.    The Blindfold

        9.    Roxana Robinson                     I.    The Life and Loves of a She-Devil

  2. Oh dear, I only knew two even though I know nearly all of these authors!


  3. Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for playing. As they used to say in grade school, an ‘A’ for effort.


  4. Oh dear me too! I am with Lisa… Know the authors but not the titles. Doesn’t bode well!


  5. I’m ashamed to say I only knew three for sure without looking anything up. Nice idea for a Christmas quiz. I look forward to many rewarding visits to your site in 2011
