I’m trying to come up with a suitable title for my latest novel. I’m thinking of ‘War To The Knife’, which is a phrase I know from my youth (the Free Dictionary offers this definition of it). However, Miss D. tells me she’s never heard the phrase before, and isn’t sure whether it’s widely known and/or used in the USA. I can believe it’s more used in English-English than in American-English, but I just don’t know.
Therefore, here’s a question for my readers. How many of you are familiar with that phrase and understand what it means? If I were to use it as the title of a book, would it make sense to you? If it would, I’ll use it; but if not, I’ll try to find something more meaningful to my main market in the USA.
Thanks for your help.
