Last week, I forgot to post the answer to NtA #6, so today we have a double reveal.
First up, the clues from Episode #6 (answer at the bottom)
1. My greatest financial success was also the novel I wrote the most quickly, from start to finish in six months.
2. I began my career in newspapers after my father foreclosed on a local paper and I was left in charge for a few months
3. I was born in the South and did most of my most well-known work while living on the East Coast, but I will always be associated with the Midwest.
4. I won a Pulitzer in fiction, though for a work that isn’t one of my three most famous novels.
5. I was so moved by a trip to visit Mesa Verde in Colorado that I set a major portions of one of my novels on a mesa.
Done guessing? here’s the answer.
And here are the clues from last week’s episode:
1. I said that my biggest influence was Hemingway, and that I thought that might surprise some people.
2. I contributed to my college’s humor magazine, though I’m not known as a comic writer.
3. I famously wrote every weekday morning and read every weekday afternoon, the smell of the restaurant preparing lunch below my office marking the change.
4. I published work in all literary forms, save drama.
5. Though I am strongly associated with New York, I spent most of my professional life living in Massachusetts.
And here’s the answer.
