Sunday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question, the last of Star Trek Week, is:
Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan. “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one.” (Don't worry, though—he was brought back to life in ST III, because the needs of the franchise outweighed the needs of the many.)

Today's question is:
From which classic American novel did the Starbucks coffee chain get its name?

You missed the better quote at the end of the movie.

Spock: "Why did you do this?"
Kirk: "Because the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many."

Hmm, Starbuck was the Rainmaker in the play and the movie, but was there a novel first?
I'm an Engish teacher, darn it; I should know this!
