That's right.

Both are correct.

a couple of sorta kinda educated guesses.

1. Steinbeck
4. Bellow
7. Whitman
8. Dostoyevsky

#1 is right.

Is #7 Tolstoy?

Yup.

Is #5 Philip Roth? He looks real similar, but I can't convince myself that this is a picture of him.

No, it's not Philip Roth :(.
Hint: He has created one of the most famous characters (not just in literature!) ever. Oh, and he was the cousin of Christopher Lee.

Oh, too easy. Ian Fleming.

All right. :)

Is #10 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, author of Elective Affinities?

Sí, muy bien.

Correct!
