Saturday Word Play- Author or Title?



Sometimes, when the title of a book is simply a full name, it could get pretty confusing figuring out who's the author and who's the title. Fortunately, most of these below probably wouldn't have that problem. In one column I give you the first names, in the other the surnames. Can you find the authors and their title characters?

As always, feel free to do all ten at home but only only answer one in the comment section, that way at least other nine others can play along.

First Names
Adam
Charles
Charlotte
Daisy
David
Dolores
Douglas
E.B.
Eleanor
Elizabeth
George
Henry
Herman
Jane
J.M.
Marjorie
Olive
Peter
Stephen
Stuart

Surnames
Barrie
Bede
Bronte
Claiborne
Copperfield
Coupland
Dickens
Eliot
Eyre
James
King
Kitteridge
Little
Miller
Morningstar
Pan
Rigby
Strout
White

CB: Yes, but you also need to find the author's name.

Douglas Coupland wrote Eleanor Rigby, a most excellent book.

I know the movie Marjorie Morningstar, but not a clue as to who wrote the book ...
