Hit the library

For the next five weeks, Bookninja’s running a series of passages from memoirs and autobiographies describing an author’s meeting with another writer. Identify the prominent literary figures in each passage, and win a prize if your answers are the first correct ones to arrive at the end of the series.

Think of it as the real-life answer to Rachel Cohen’s A Chance Meeting, which was reviewed most recently by John Banville in the weekend’s Guardian.
