James Joyce - Flann O'Brien - Laurence Sterne - Jonathan Swift - ... = Frank McCourt
(Walker Percy - Harper Lee) + (Henry Miller - Samuel Beckett) = Tom Robbins
Shall we add a few poetry equations (or political ones if you prefer)? Some shots in the dark, getting-the-hang-of-it efforts follow.
(Sylvia Plath + Lewis Carroll) - Anne Sexton = Jo Shapcott
Walt Whitman + Sigmund Freud - Robert Frost = C.K.Williams
Theodore Roethke + Jack Benny = Billy Collins
W.H.Auden - Goethe - Brecht = Edward Lear
Elmer Gantry + Hughie Green + Peter Mandelson = Tony Blair
No, not sure about any of these... Play among yourselves, or with yourselves.
