OT Follow-Up: Trivia Anyone?

A few weeks ago I wrote about how I've started going to trivia night at a local bar. The trivia always features one question about books (or the two weeks I've gone it has). Three weeks ago I posted the following question:

These three books are all first novels. Name the author of each of them:


  1. Soldier's Pay
  2. The Sun Also Rises
  3. Player Piano
The answers are as follows:

  1. Soldier's Pay - William Faulkner
  2. The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway
  3. Player Piano - Kurt Vonnegut
The only one I knew on this particular trivia night was The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. Leeswammes correctly guessed Player Piano. I am thinking that she would be great to bring along to a trivia night! Too bad she lives so far away! I am going to trivia next Wednesday so I will try to remember to post the book question from it. Nice job leeswammes!

**I put links to Amazon.com for the three books. Just click on the book title in the question portion (not the answer portion) to see a description of the book on Amazon's site if you are interested in reading any of these. The Sun Also Rises is on my TBR List for this year! I hope I get to it!

You did better than I would have done - I didn't know any of those!

@Jackie - I will say in all fairness that all three were contemporary American authors so for those outside the U.S. the question may have been more difficult. However, I only knew Ernest Hemingway! I've only read Slaughterhouse Five by Vonnegut (and didn't like it...AT ALL) and I've never read Faulkner (although he is on my list to get to eventually).

I LOVE Trivia so I'd love to come along to a trivia night someday! :-)

We "did" Kurt Vonnegut in the Authot, Author Shelfari group, that's how I knew!
