One Earring Short of a Novel

A challenge for litgroupies only.

Lots of bits of famous writers and a competition to identify them at The Guardian website. I've recognised one or two but ... I'm giving nothing away!

Those of you who aspire to be great writers one day remember - this could be your fate, your balding pate, bulbous nose or straggling eyebrows isolated for the amusement of the reading public. Is the struggle to get into print ultimately worth it if this is your reward?

Well okay ... see if you can identify the writer this bit belongs to.

problem is, all those whom i've named are not writers!
