The Novel’s Title May 16, 2008

Posted by sneaks in fun.

Slow moments at the reference desk sometimes inspire the kind of back-and-forth title lobbing that results in a list like “Famous and Possessive,” seen this week on Booklist online. The list is Keir Graff’s alphabetic shout-out to all of those books whose titles read “Someone famous’s Noun”. Like Galileo’s Daughter and Schrodinger’s Cat.

I might add in a list of “The Professional’s Family Member”: The Memory Keeper’s Daughter; The Time Traveller’s Wife; The Arsonist’s Daughter; The Magician’s Nephew, The Abortionist’s Daughter.

Is it worth a display? Only on a very boring day. But the list is worth a look. Keir Graff’s blog is just the thing for a rainy Friday afternoon.
