A Murder and a Metaphor: Litkicks Mystery Spot #1 has been posted by Levi Asher on his blog, Literary Kicks. There is an aerial photo from 1924 for which Asher is taking reader’s guesses in identifying it. Here’ are some “hints”:
• You have definitely read this novel. It’s one of the most widely loved novels of all time.
• A person is killed, during one of the novel’s climactic scenes, by the forked road near the top right of the photo.
• The vast expanse in the photo’s center, which appears to be a work of geometric modern art, provides one of the novel’s central metaphors.
Though he has not given an exact deadline, Asher will not post any further comments on this until he decides reveals the answer. And, given the number, it seems this may be a recurring activity on his blog.
