• Hi! And welcome to my Modern/Contemporary Fiction test. Though it isn't perfect, it's a fairly decent measure of how well-read you are with contemporary fiction (i.e. anything after 1900). Some books featured are recent (<50 years) classics, while others were published fewer than 5 years ago, but have already received great acclaim and distinction. This test is *fairly difficult* and is intended for those who generally consider themselves well-versed in popular contemporary fiction of literary distinction (i.e. no to Stephen King, yes to Gabriel Garcia Marquez). Read carefully and you'll get plenty of laughs, as well.
