Correct on 1 and 3. For 2, I was thinking Margo Lane; I know that Cranston lets the Shadow use his identity as a cover, but are they really friends and confidantes?

Prof. Pepperwinkle 08-07-2019 06:27 PM

So, an adult female main character, last name starts with L, probably from a short story (or novella) written by an American in the 1930's that's been made into features for TV and movies. Not a kid's book or genre fiction, and set in the past (pre-1930's). I never read Little House on the Prairie, but I'm thinking it's something like that.

OTOH, did Simon Legree have a wife?

No. The Civil War Charleston diarist Mary Boykin Chesnut pointed that out in a glancing allusion to plantation owner's habits of raping their female slaves: "Mrs. Stowe did not hit the sorest spot. She makes Legree a bachelor."

Prof. Pepperwinkle 08-07-2019 07:21 PM

That book's the wrong decade anywho.

And Little House is a children's series if I remember correctly.

Good choice, EH. She's got elegance. I knew we'd discussed it before, but I'd forgotten we decided that plays were considered prose.

He said European and not from the UK, so that eliminates Canadian and Australian. I thought UK included all of Ireland, but Brexit might have changed that. Plenty of Europeans speak multiple languages, so the mystery guest could be multilingual.

Series could be on a cable or streaming channel. Preacher and Walking Dead have non-Americans playing Americans, so possibly somebody from there.
