January 27, 2012

Children’s: What author recounts four separate but interlinked stories side by side, in Black and White?

Classics: What West Virginia-born novelist won a Nobel Prize in 1938 for “her rich and truly epic descriptions of peasant life in China”?

Non-Fiction: What true-crime author penned Red Zone, about the dog-mauling death of Diane Whipple?

Book Club: What university does Blue attend when he’s not spying on Black for White, in Paul Auster’s novel Ghost?

Authors: What Nobel Prize-winning U.S. novelist fathered his fourth child in 1999 at the age of 84?

Book Bag: What author features L.A. cop Peter Decker and his sleuthing spouse Rina Lazarus in mysteries like A Serpent’s Tooth and Jupiter’s Bones?

    Pearl Buck, for the Chinese-peasant-life? Just guessing. And Aphrodite Jones for Red Zone….and I don’t know the rest, but it’s cruel to have two answers based on the same series (that I haven’t read) 😉

      hint: the game is not cruel. At least not in that particular way!

    I only got the Pearl Buck question myself, but the Book Club questions makes me think that the Children’s answer must be Paul Auster.

      Do not be misled. No author is repeated on this card.

        Okay. Pearl S Buck is my only confident answer in any case!
