Abstemiously was the word that occurred to me; obviously facetiously is good. I had no idea there were only two--or are there more?

Over to HIMS.

Well, I always liked the green and blue ones in trivial pursuit so LITERATURE!

Amos Oz just won the Franz Kafka Prize. Name all the other winners of the prize (1 point each for a total of 12 available points).

Hmm...maybe I should remove the link, but people need to be informed and anyone reading the literature news these days probably knows them already.

We have another one:

Fat Abe: 1 Jelinek

Only ten more to go. I think I'll let this go the weekend and kill it unless poohbear of Abe want to suggest a different quiz question now.

Okay, I've killed this. I'll refrain from answering quiz questions in the future.

The list of winners for the Kafka Prize:
2013 Amos Oz
2012 Daniela Hodrová
2011 John Banville
2010 Václav Havel
2009 Peter Handke
2008 Arnošt Lustig
2007 Yves Bonnefoy
2006 Haruki Murakami
2005 Harold Pinter
2004 Elfriede Jelinek
2003 Péter Náda
2002 Ivan Klíma
2001 Philip Roth

Can poohbear_nc or Fat Abe come up with a new quiz question.

It was a difficult quiz as the Kafka Prize doesn't hit the media prominently. Possibly because only 3 write in English and some have not been translated. And since it is sponsored by the City of Prague it is no surprise that 4 of the 13 winners have been Czech.

But, please, continue to post answers. Show off your intellect
