Two for Tuesday the 28th

Two Literature Questions
  1. Boris Pasternak's greatest work was suppressed and could not be published in the Soviet Union; it was finally released in Italy in 1959. Name the classic the Soviets banned.
  2. “This is my favorite book in all the world, though I have never read it.” This is the first line of a book that includes the Cliffs of Insanity, Rodents Of Unusual Size, and a sword made for a six fingered man. Name this novel supposedly written by S. Morgenstern, but whose “Good Parts” version was written by William Goldman.


  1. 1. Dr. Zhivago (?)
    2. I really don't know literature ... The Princess Bride?

  2. Sorry, planning for a camping trip.

    Yes, Dr. Zhivago and the Princess Bride. Two great movies, too.
