As author isn't doing another one, I will. What book is this from? (quite easy) :dance:

Mystery writer wrote:"And Hell?" I asked.
"What about it?"
"Is there Hell?"
"Oh no," she replied. "That was just necerssary propaganda."
"I was wondering, you see. Because I met Hitler."
"Lots of people do. He's a sort of...tourist site, really. What did you make of him?"
"Oh, I didn't meet him," I said firmly. "He's a man I wouldn't shake the hand of. I watched him go by from behind the bushes."
"Ah, yes. Quite a lot of people prefer to do it that way."

You can try if you want. :dance:

I'll give clues about the author tomorrow if nobody's got it. 8-)

Did this author win the Booker prize in 2011? For the novel The Sense of an Ending? :P

“I shall sit down,' replied the cat, sitting down, 'but I shall enter an objection with regard to your last. My speeches in no way resemble verbal muck, as you have been pleased to put it in the presence of a lady, but rather a sequence of tightly packed syllogisms, the merit of which would be appreciated by such connoisseurs as Sextus Empiricus, Martianus Capella, and, for all I know, Aristotle himself.'

Your king is in check,' said Woland.

Very well, very well,' responded the cat, and he began studying the chessboard through his opera glasses.

And so, donna,' Woland addressed Margarita, 'I present to you my retinue. This one who is playing the fool is the cat Behemoth...”

Mystery writer wrote:The polls, then, suggest that at least 40% of Americans are creationists - that's dyed-in-the-wool, out-and-out, anti-evolution creationists, not believers in 'evolution but God sort of helped it along' (there were plenty of them too). The equivalent figures for Britain, and much of Europe, are slightly less extreme, but not much more encouraging. There are still no grounds for complacency.

I'm pretty sure that in this game you're supposed to say the book, not the author. 8-)
