I would dispute that under the title of classic authors and the subject was the works of William Golding, once before under the same subject it was the works of Iris Murdoch, If I had picked that title and have had to answer questions on the afore mentioned authors. i would have been dissappointed surely as both died in the 1990's they can under no stretch of the imagination be classed as a classic author.
likewise under the sublject of art the booker prize qualifiers have been asked more than once,
can we have more mainstream accepted classic authors, Dickens, Austen, Conan Doyle etc
or am I just an old stick in the mud! and not in the view of trendy Liberal BBC worth listening to ?

I'd regard Golding and Murdoch as more literary authors than Conan Doyle, with long careers that qualify them for the category despite being only recently deceased.
