Daily Question – 104

Identify the cousins in the first picture and connect them with the second visual.

Answer: Daniel (David) Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee wrote detective fiction under the name Ellery Queen. In a successful series of novels that covered forty-two years, Ellery Queen served as both author’s name and that of the detective-hero. The cousins also wrote four novels about a detective named Drury Lane using the pseudonym Barnaby Ross. Drury Lane was named for a street in London, which you see in the second picture.
