    Miss Lonelyhearts clasped it, and they stood this way, smiling and holding hands, until Mrs. Doyle re-entered the room. ‘What a sweet pair of fairies you guys are,’ she said.” Again Miss Lonelyhearts’ sexuality is a problematic area for him, more-so because its orientation is being called into question. Miss Lonelyhearts is Nathanael West's second novel. It is an Expressionist black comedy set in New York City during the Great Depression. In the story, Miss Lonelyhearts is an unnamed male newspaper columnist writing an advice column, which is viewed by the newspaper as a joke. As Shrike declares, “The Miss Lonelyhearts are the priests of 20th century America.” Miss Lonelyhearts becomes a counterpart for Christ, and his column a modern source of communion. Calling all bookworms: How well do you know literature? We'll give you the first line of a novel, and you have to choose the book it comes from. Put your skills to the test, and take this quiz on memorable literary sentences.
