Fun quiz. Interesting choices for some of these authors - who knew Men Without Women was Hemingway's best work? But please consider accepting some alternates for some of these titles. Eg I typed in Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but neither was accepted. Also, Remembrance of Things Past for the Proust title. Similarly, are "thes" really necessary, as in Portrait of a Lady? Alice in Wonderland?
