author or novel?

Since it was a reference to the novel, not the author, wouldn't it make more sense to move this to the title of the novel? -- Wendy (talk) 15:32, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, this has cropped up before. See Talk:Agatha Christie for the best general policy explanation. Basically, if more than one work by the same author has been referenced (or the author is referenced by name or spoofed), the author gets a page. If it's a reference to a title only, the book gets a page. In a case like this in particular, where Remarque is fairly obscure and other references to the person relatively unlikely, I'd say a move would make sense. See also War and Peace. We don't have a Tolstoy page, since that's the only reference (well, there's a very loose maybe one in Karina the Ballerina being a reference to the ballet based on Anna Karenina, but that's removed enough and not an actual reference to the work but to the ballet element). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 19:41, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
