Aerial Photograph Stars in Literary Mystery Contest

storymap.jpgOver at Literary Kicks, that aerial photograph has sparked a literary guessing game. That photo, taken in 1924, reveals the site of a famous literary death scene.

Follow this link to see a larger version of the picture. All you have to do is guess which literary work is represented in the photograph–part of Literary Kicks’ first Mystery Spot guessing game.

Here’s more about the contest: “You have definitely read this novel. It’s one of the most widely loved novels of all time. A person is killed, during one of the novel’s climactic scenes, by the forked road near the top right of the photo. The vast expanse in the photo’s center, which appears to be a work of geometric modern art, provides one of the novel’s central metaphors.”
