Edward Gorey’s cover for The New York Review Quiz Book by the New York Review of Books (no names of editors are listed). Wanna try a couple? Okay, here goes: 1: What is the connection between “Daffy Duck in Hollywood,” “Houseboat Days,” and “Unctuous Platitudes”? 2: When a young man who had recently returned home from Paris recalled that he owed some money to G.W. Russell, who might have summed it up as black, white, red, green, and blue?
Want another one? Okay, but this one is not from the Quiz Book, I’m making it up special for you: Who was poetry editor of The Paris Review when Charles Bernstein’s Language Sampler appeared (in issue number 86, in 1982)?
