Trivial Pursuit for Book-Lovers
I'm calling this the Easter edition, because of the first question. Also the completely gratuitous picture of our rabbit.
Children's: Who began his infamous raids on Mr. McGregor's garden in 1902?
Classics: What was the first Raymond Chandler novel to feature private eye Philip Marlowe?
Non-Fiction: What Portuguese navigator's ill-fated-16th-century voyage to the Spice Islands is the focus of Laurence Bergreen's Over the Edge of the World?
Book Club: What famed artist's trip to Tahiti features in Mario Vargas Llosa's novel The Way to Paradise?
Authors: What novel caused Sebastian Junger to note "I've written as complete an account as possible of something that can never be fully known"?
Book Bag: What self-published bestseller sends its hero on a quest for a Peruvian manuscript containing nine mystical "insights"?
