More information about Final Jeopardy:
The 2015 list was compiled by Jane Ciabattari. Virginia Woolf’s three that made the list: #16 The Waves, #3 Mrs. Dalloway, and #2 To The Lighthouse. In fact, 6 of the top 10 are by female authors: #1 was George Eliot’s Middlemarch, #5 was Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, #7 was Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, and #9 was Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Jane Austen also had three on the list: #11 Pride and Prejudice, #19 Emma, and #20 Persuasion. Of course, Austen died in 1817, not 1941.
