Saturday Word Play- Hanukkah: One Line Word Searches

As Hanukkah officially began yesterday, I thought this would be a good time to show an appreciation for Jewish authors. Below I've given you ten titles written by Jewish people. The authors' names have been hidden amongst people mentioned in Adam Sandler's 3 versions of "The Chanukah Song". Can you spot the author AND match them with their titles?

As always, feel free to do all ten at home but answer only one in the comments below. That way nine more people can play along.

Natasha and Other Stories/ Elizabeth and After/ Little Brother/ The Incomparable Atuk/ Joseph Had A Little Overcoat/ Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs/ My Sister's Keeper/ Herzog/ Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy/ Howl

Ok, I just watched the clip. So funny. But, even though I read Neil Diamond, I processed in my head Neil Young, so it took me a while to hear the singing right. I couldn't figure out why Neil Young would do this. Too funny.

Well, I was going to go with a certain mensch from Montreal but then I spotted Allen Ginsberg and could not resist Howling that I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.
