A Literary Quiz
By Kirsty OUP-UK
Just a short post from the UK this morning, but one that should really get you thinking. Our book How Novels Work, which is no stranger to us at OUPblog (as you can see here and here), is now coming out in paperback. To celebrate this, author John Mullan put together a few booky brainteasers, and here they are. The answers can be found here – but no cheating!
Q2. Which is Ian McEwan’s circadian novel?
Q3. What is the name of the book that Nathan Zuckerman is writing in Philip Roth’s The Human Stain?
Q4. Who was the first novelist in English to use free indirect style throughout a novel?
Q6. Name a Booker Prize-winning novel of the last two decades written entirely in the present tense.
