Tuesday Trivia

Richard Lederer, in Literary Trivia, has a truly evil section which he calls "The Mother of All Titles", in which he give Initials Only for titles and authors. He has a HUNDRED of these.

Here are a few that I was actually able to "get". Can you figure them out?

The D of a Y G, by A F

The H of N D by V H

The C of the W by J L

The L S of J A P by T S E

The R of the A M by S T C

(and now my head hurts!)

Here's the answer to last week's trivia question:
(Also from Richard Lederer's Literary Trivia)

Can you connect the location with the author? For "extra bragging rights", name one or more stories set in that location.

d) William Faulkener wrote about 1. Yoknapatawpha County in The Sound and the Fury, Absalom, Absalom!, and many other stories.

a)William Shakespeare wrote about 2. The Forest of Arden in As You Like It.

b)George Orwell wrote about 3. Oceania in 1984.

c)Kenneth Grahame wrote about 4. Toad Hall in The Wind in the Willows.
