It's quiz time 2...An American Trilogy

Isn't it just beautiful? Paphos sunset. I love it!

Hello Everyone,

The answers to last week's Shakespeare quiz are now available. So, how many did you get right? Go on... be honest. Did you cheat and look up the answers?

For my second quiz in this series, I am using three eminent American authors, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck.

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St Paul, Minnesota and wrote five novels and five volumes of short stories. Ernest Hemingway was from Chicago, the second of six children and the son of a doctor. John Steinbeck was born in California, he wrote a number of books, short stories and plays.

Twelve questions. Twenty-four characters. Can you name the twelve novels and their author. Well, you have a one in three chance of being right with the author. Answers next week.
