Name That Famous American Novel


I illustrated this as a picture puzzle. How fast can you name the famous American novel to which I'm referring?

ALERT: Try guessing before you go into the thread.

Ed B:

Well, my first guess was "A Farewell to Arms" by Hemingway, but I have to admit that the black eye (or could it be a "Pete the Dog" reference from the Little Rascals?) has me stymied. Need to sleep on this.

Ed B:

Unless of course the black eye refers to fighting, which might fit...

John Cox:

Hey Ed
Nailed it. I was thinking about turning this image into a prospective book cover with Hemingway's title, but I thought a fun guessing game would work, too.

Well done, sir.


Catcher in the Rye!
Am I right?


Looks like the Howard Cosell comments are off! So here's my comment.
