Bend It Like Henry James

Hours before the World Cup, The Telegraph (UK) publishes a quiz that "is unusual for two reasons. First, because it is a World Cup Quiz that eschews all mention of football. And second, because you are given the answers in advance."

Here's question 14: Which of Henry James's novels did the author find so boring that he excluded it from the New York edition of his collected works?

Personally, one isn't quite looking forward to the next week -- or however long the World Cup lasts -- during which almost all conversation will revolve around the respective merits of Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and the rest. (Aren't those two same person, by the way?)
