Tuesday Trivia

Richard Lederer, in Literary Trivia, is a big fan of autobiographies. However, many autobiographies are misleading. Black Beauty, the Autobiography of a Horse, was not written by a horse. Nor was the Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas written by Ms Toklas. (It was written by her good friend Gertrude Stein.

Can you match these autobiographical titles up with the authors who wrote them?

Black Boy
The Diary of a Young Girl
I know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog
Roughing It

Maya Angelou
Anne Frank
Dylan Thomas
Mark Twain
Richard Wright
