D on’t know about you, but down here in my little world, it’s been a tough week. I’m sitting here on the couch, blogging and thanking my stars that Friday has finally come.

I thought I’d make a toast to the much-awaited weekend with this fun (supper easy) quiz.

It’s simple:

Tell me what these four familiar faces have in common. Click here for a clue.

All of a sudden, I’m not so certain you guys even know everyone in the group. So extra points for telling me the name of each person.

Go!

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.

    They all have a Nobel Prize. I guess their names would be: Derek Walcott, Wole Soyinka, Toni Morrison and Alice Munro. Am I right?

    Nobel winners! Nadine Gordimer, Derek Wolcott, Wole Soyinka & Toni Morrison.
