We have a winner! JoAnne Ruvoli is an avid reader and a huge fan of short fiction (see, publishing world? These people are out there!) and also very clever. She got 9 out of 9 right, proving that the test, while by no means easy, was not impossible.
So without further ado, original quotes first, then their answers:
- “The others present, including the landlord, he regarded with the boredom of long habit and with a shade of lofty disdain, as if he considered them too much his inferiors in rank and education to speak to.”
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
- “Way up beyond the white pines, out of sight, was the open, hilly land full of bristly mosses, ground birds, deer, and wild turkeys, even.”
AMERICAN SALVAGE by Bonnie Jo Campbell
- “Pulses were beating in his eyes, veiling their sight, and he felt the fever of his cheeks.”
ULYSSES by James Joyce
- “The flowers came up to his waist.”
CARAVAN THIEVES by Gerard Woodward
- “Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget: a singing compulsion, a whispered ‘Listen,’ a promise that she had done gay, exciting things just a while since and that there were gay, exciting things hovering in the next hour.”
THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- “Ran away.”
STORM WARNING by Vanessa Gebbie
- “I shake my head quite a lot.”
THE CATCHER IN THE RYE by JD Salinger
- “I had planted them too far down in the earth.”
THE BLUEST EYE by Toni Morrison
- “After which they are sent down to the Embryo Store.”
BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley
Well done, JoAnne; congratulations! JoAnne will receive an autographed copy of THE TEMPLE OF AIR (I know, shameless, right?) for her fine and astute work. Thanks to all who attempted to find the answers. And thanks again for reading!
