Hemingway 1, Dan Brown 0.5

On Sunday night’s episode of The Good Wife, Peter, the Illinois Governor-Elect, decides to test the intellectual mettle of Marilyn, his once and future ethics advisor who has committed herself to keeping him out of that place that so many Illinois governors end up: prison.  To perform his test, Peter asks Marilyn whether she prefers Hemingway or Dan Brown as a novelist.  Marilyn acknowledges she hasn’t read The Da Vinci Code, but has seen the movie. She admits to liking Tom Hanks.

Peter then gives her the right answer: Hemingway is the better novelist.

Marilyn notes that she spent so much time in law school obsessed with her work that she didn’t have much time for fiction. But she gamely offers to read Dan Brown.
