Hey, all you hella coolaphonic blogger geekazoids! Chartroose was really joensin for me again, and since she’s so totally dank in every way, I’ve agreed to help her out once more. So, here I am, all amped up and ready to introduce the next boglius prize in our gnarly gnovel contest. This time, it’s an awesome $25 online gift certificate from Uncommon Goods. This shop has the sickest swag ever! If you don’t believe me, go check it out for yourself.
If you haven’t done this this before, the rules are simple. Read the following plot synopsis and be the first person to give a correct answer in the comments. Chartroose is looking for both the author and the title.
Are you ready? Here it is:
This will be a quick one, dudes, because the book and the author are famous. The hero is an American dude serving in the Italian army during wartime. He falls in love with an Englishwoman early in the novel and she follows him and nurses him while he’s in the hack shack. They bump uglies and she gets knocked-up and then they get separated and then he’s almost ganked by some freaked-out Italian officers. Near the end of the novel, the hero and his squeeze get back together and end up in a neutral country. They are blissfully happy until a terrible tragedy occurs and the hero is left alone. Numb with shock, he zombies back to his hotel in the rain.
Okay, dudes, the first correct answer wins. What’s the title, and who wrote it? Good luck!
