If so, you’ll have to pass a test – a literary test that is. This post from the NY Times notes that the Strand “has included a literary matching quiz in its job application form since the 1970s.” But fear not, the post also has five sample tests that you can take to hone your knowledge of authors and their books. Naturally, you’ll need to beware of trick questions.
Oh! You’ll probably want to sharpen your shelving skills too!
