Saturday Word Play- Before and After Titles


In today's Saturday Word Play, I'll give you the last names of two authors. Can you combine two of their titles with a matching word? For instance, if I gave you Carroll/Williams you could combine Lewis Carroll's Through The Looking Glass with Tennessee Williams's Glass Menagerie to get:

Through the Looking Glass Menagerie.

Got it? (Hint: the authors are in the correct order)

As always, feel free to do all 10 at home, but only answer one in the comment section. That way 10 people can play along.

1. Atwood/DiCamillo
2. White/Andrews
3. Montgomery/Bemrose
4. Woodward & Bernstein/Gray
5. Fielding/Frank
6. le Carre/Frazier
7. Mitchell/Grahame
8. Dickens/Dubus III
9. Ishiguro/Wyndham
10. MacLennan/King

1. The Handmaid's Tale of Despereaux

Jo-Ann said...

C.S. Lewis is not the author of Through the looking glass, Lewis Carroll is.
# 3 is Anne of the Island Walkers.

7. Who Has Seen the Wind in the Willows

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I didn't think I could pull this one off, but I do believe that #2 would be:

Charlotte's Web of Dreams

yay me!

Anonymous: Bingo.

Jo-Ann: What are you talking about? That's what it says. Actually, I'm so embarrassed that I made that mistake (especially as I just reviewed that book last month). Must be the "Lewis" throwing me off. Anyway, it's fixed now and thanks for pointing it out. And yes, your answer is right.

Pooker: Neat! That's not the answer I had, but W.O. Mitchell works, too. I had intended it to be Margaret Mitchell (Gone With The Wind).

Barbara: I thought that one was one of the more difficult because of the V.C. Andrews half. Good job.

I believe #6 is:
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold Mountain.

Kristi said...

I think #4 is All The President's Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus.

This was fun!

Wanda said...

A little late to the game and not big on Stephen King so I'll take #5: Bridget Jones's Diary of a Young Girl
