Quiz: Who Wrote It First?

I found an article in the LA Times titled Quiz: Who Wrote It First? by Carolyn Kellogg. In her article, Kellogg writes:
In the new book "Authorisms: Words Wrought by Writers" (Bloomsbury, 240 pages, $18) Paul Dickson provides a glossary of familiar terms -- more than 1,700 -- all coined by literary figures. Do you know your bookish etymology? Take our quiz.

Click on the above link to test your knowledge! I didn't do so well and only scored 40% on the quiz. 

I'm interested in checking out Paul Dickson's book "Authorisms: Words Wrought by Writers" to find out which familiar terms were coined by which famous literary figures.
