What's the quiz?

Hits on this blog have quatrupled today, and everyone is being directed here by search engine with this query:
Which character in Sylvia Plath's novel, The Bell Jar, said its opening line: "It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York" ?
I suppose it's just possible that there's been a spontaneous outbreak of interest in Sylvia Plath, but more likely this is a quiz question. Must be a big quiz... Anyone know which?

Well maybe, but I don't think so. The traffic has pretty much tailed off now, but I had about 500 hits yesterday looking for this, and they came from pretty much all over the US.
