Puzzle 489, week of Sep 19, 2022
Send me the first book (two words) by a modern American novelist. Rhyme the two title words to a “W”, add “ER” to the end of one, and phonetically you get two rock bands. Interestingly both bands started playing within five years of when the book was published.
Submit your answers here with the subject line “puzzle answer” for a chance to be this week’s winner. (No prize – just a shout out on the radio.)
The Point Puzzle is produced at KPOV, High Desert Community Radio, in Bend Oregon. It is heard on radio stations around the US, distributed through Audioport and PRX.
