Authors L-P: 'L' Trivia Questions

1. In which year does Johanna's point-of-view chapter take place?

From Quiz
Rosina Lippi's 'Homestead': The Bent Elbow Clan

Answer: 1916

Hans, Angelika's husband, has been fighting on the Eastern Front, but returns home on temporary leave for a few weeks. While Angelika is pleased to have him back, Johanna has mixed feelings, although Hans' presence means that Angelika and their daughter Mikatrin will not be alone at night and Johanna can go up to Gunta Steeple, the house higher up in the mountains where she takes the animals to graze. Johanna and Angelika's father left them Gunta Steeple, but Angelika's share went to Hans when she married him. Although Johanna lives with Angelika and her family for part of the year, she enjoys being alone at Gunta Steeple the rest of the time. As Hans is injured, Johanna has to help with cutting the hay, as he cannot hold a scythe properly.

2. What type of poem is "The New Colossus?"

From Quiz The New Colossus

Answer: Petrarchan sonnet

The poem is an Italian style sonnet, with 8 verses in the first stanza and six in the second. It also follows the metric scheme abbaabba cdcdcd. It is named after the 14th century Italian poet Petrarch. While Petrarch did not invent the style, his work did popularize it. While Shakespeare wrote many sonnets, structurally they were quite different than the sonnets written by the Italian poets who originated the form. Haiku originated in Japan; it is a 17 syllable poem divided into three parts (5-7-5). Odes date back to ancient Greece, and are generally formal works on serious subjects. While the structure of odes varies, they are usually longer than sonnets.

3. Thomas Waverly was a hitch hiker in search of a grander life. When he meets a preacher in a camper, what Biblical figure does the preacher compare him to?

From Quiz "The Apostle Murders": A Thriller

Answer: the doubting apostle Thomas

Thomas Waverly is a hitchhiker from Boston headed to California to join a new age group and find a place to belong. Preach picks him up in the RV and listens to the boys background of being the son of a lawyer and doctor. When he mentions his last name is Waverly, Preach calls him a doubting Thomas because "Waver" is from the word doubt. The boy suspects the preacher of being a rapist or kidnapper but has no idea the preacher is planning to murder him for what he views as the cause of Christ.

4. What questions did the Welcome Lady ask Joanna Eberhart in the beginning scene, to which Joanna almost responded with "none", but ultimately answered truthfully?

From Quiz The Stepford Wives

Answer: What hobbies she had

Joanna was busy moving into her new house in Stepford with Walter when the Welcome Lady kept bothering her. When the woman asked about Joanna's hobbies, she nearly answered none just so the woman would leave. Instead, Joanna answered with her photography and activity in the women's liberation movement, to show she was not just another housewife.

5. At the beginning of this book, we see Jazz (also known as Jasper Dent) spying on a crime scene. A girl was murdered. What body part did the murderer cut off of her body?

From Quiz "I Hunt Killers" by: Barry Lyga

Answer: a finger

The killer cut off one finger. On his next victim, he cuts off two fingers and leaves one behind. On the next victim, he cuts off three and leaves one behind and so forth.

6. On August 13th, the entirety of what city suffered from unexplainable headaches and reanimation?

From Quiz Handling the Undead

Answer: Stockholm

On August 13th, what could only be perceived as an electric field intensified, causing painful headaches and an inability to turn off electrical devices in the Stockholm area. Only one man saw a small creature burrow into a gravestone-- no one else realized the significance of the event until, at one point, it simply released. David Zetterberg, his wife Eva, and his son Magnus all felt the pain of the headache set in. While David headed to work, Eva took Magnus to her parents' place. An hour later, fearing an impending issue, David received a call from the hospital-- Eva hit an elk during her drive. When he arrived at the hospital the pain intensified; alarms sounded; lights were blinding. And then all of a sudden it stopped. David felt his headache disappear in an instant but didn't notice the small, white creature fall from the ceiling and burrow into his wife. When he squeezed her hand he was shocked to find it squeeze back...and then she sat up. Mahler, a journalist, returned home with groceries to find his daughter, Anna, still in bed and still alive. Anna's son, Elias, fell to his death off the balcony two months earlier. Experiencing the same headache, Mahler laid down on the sofa and felt immediate anxiety-- his pacemaker seemed to be going double its regular rhythm. The pressure built before stopping, like with everyone else. A short time later he received a call from the hospital: the dead had started to rise; they were escaping the morgue. He decided that this was worth looking into.

7. What is the name of Jaine's cat?

From Quiz 'Jaine Austen Mysteries' by Laura Levine

Answer: Prozac

Jaine's neurotic cat is named Prozac! Prozac loves eating Jaine's leftovers and having her belly rubbed.

8. Lorelei begins her diary in which month?

From Quiz Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Answer: March

Receiving a diary from the man who wishes to educate her, Lorelei begins her writings in March (on the 16th) as January and February have already passed -- not that it matters, of course. Her days since the first of January have been spent with her educator, Gus Eisman, who's also a button salesman, and days with him tend to be the same. They go to dinner every night and talk at such great lengths that, when she goes home, she's so tired she sleeps through until the next dinner. On March 17th, Dorothy, Lorelei's best friend, calls up and asks her to head to the follies with herself and an Englishman, Lord Cooksleigh, a man who Lorelei doesn't like because of his boring stories. She heads to the follies with them but avoids lunch the following day, instead conjuring an imaginative lie to keep him at bay. After Lorelei's birthday on the 21st she finds herself disappointed with a small diamond given as a gift by Mr. Eisman (that is until he brings her a more expensive diamond bracelet) and she meets a literary man by the name of Gerald Lamson. She realizes she's getting a little crush on him. As March comes to a close, Lorelei anticipates the announcement of a trip to Europe but she fears separating herself from 'Gerry' as the two of them get along quite nicely.

9. From which poem is this line taken? "To have no son, no wife, no house or land still seemed quite natural."

From Quiz Phillip Larkin 'The Whitsun Weddings'

Answer: Dockery and Son

In 'Dockery and Son' the voice of the poem travels back to his university to find that one of his classmates has a son at that university now. The voice then thinks of how young his classmate 'Dockery' must have been when he started his family and reflects on his own life in comparison. Typical to Larkin, we are left with a somber thought that "Life is first boredom, then fear."

10. Laxness passed away in February 1998 - how old was he?

From Quiz The Life and Works of Halldór Laxness

Answer: 95 years old

Laxness was born in Reykjavík on April 23rd, 1902. He passed away at the age of 95, having retired from writing some ten years earlier.

11. In what country is the novel set?

12. "'I guess it's over,' Veronica said. 'Bristol? asked Sarah. 'Everything,' Veronica replied." What are Veronica and Sarah discussing?

From Quiz 'Children of the Dust' by Louise Lawrence

Answer: Nuclear bombs

14. When did Marcus and Dawn first see Mr. Bros?

From Quiz Anne Lindbergh's "The Shadow on the Dial"

Answer: on their way to Florida

It was almost a race between Dawn and Marcus's family and Mr. Bros--they'd pass him, he'd pass them... you get the picture.

15. As the book opens, Sarah's teacher tells the class to run home as the first bombs have fallen and nuclear attack is imminent. Where does he say the first bombs fell?

From Quiz Children of the Dust

Answer: Hamburg and Leningrad

Sarah runs the two miles to her home in twenty minutes, and by the time she arrives the BBC radio station has reported the first bomb dropping on London and fallen silent...

16. Art had a stunning streak that ran through her hair. What colour was it?

From Quiz Piratica

Answer: ginger

This stunning ginger streak running through Art's hair was the result of a cannon blast gone wrong. It always reminded Art's posh father of Molly, Art's mother. Molly had flaming red hair like fire. It reflected both Art and Molly's personalities.

Answer: Army general

Laclos began to write the novel in 1778 during several leaves of duty from his garrison at La Rochelle; the work was published in 1782.

Anita Loos, 1883-1981, was one of the first and the most influential of the flappers and sold over 100 scenarios to D. W. Griffith by the time she was 18. She went on to a distinguished career as playwright and screenwriter, biographer and novelist. Inspiration for 'Gentlemen' came from a cross-country train trip taken together with several studio executives and one blonde starlet. The men spent the week fighting over the blonde's bags while Loos was left to lug her own. The problem, she decided, had to be hair colour.
