Can you tell an author's sex?

An interesting challenge, from today's Guardian online:

"The Naipaul test: Can you tell an author's sex?

In an interview at the Royal Geographic Society this week, during which VS Naipaul provoked fury by suggesting that women writers are 'sentimental' and 'unequal to me', he also claimed that 'I read a piece of writing and within a paragraph or two I know whether it is by a woman or not.' Do you?"

Take the test at http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/quiz/20 ... s-sex-quiz

I couldn't tell: my score was 6 out of 10.

I think Naipaul is full of it.
