Name That Author!: April 5, 2012

Welcome to Name That Author!, a Name That Tune-style author-guessing game.

We start by giving you one clue, then one additional clue per hour through the afternoon. The first person to guess the author correctly wins a book of our choosing, and all other correct guessers will be entered into a drawing at the end of each month.

You can submit your guess using the form below after any clue, but if you’re wrong, you’re out for the week. So you’ve got to pick your spot. Too early and you might be wrong; wait until you’re sure, and you might get scooped.

**Be warned: if you Tweet your guess or leave a comment with your guess, you’re not only disqualified for this week, but for the rest of the month.**

Here we go:

1. I have received more than two dozen honorary doctorates.

2. I am perhaps best known for my work that some have called “autobiographical fiction”  

3. Some were surprised when I supported Hilary Clinton’s presidential nomination campaign rather than Barack Obama’s.

4.  My publisher sold more of my books in January of 1993 than they did in all of 1992.

The question isn't, "Should I go?" The question is, "Can I live with myself if I don't?" Book Riot Live happens in NYC, November 12 - 13. Register today to save $20 with discount code BOOKNERD. BRL_WeGotIt_RC2
