NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sept 25) - A book becomes a writer/TV Personality

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sept 25) - A book becomes a writer/TV Personality
Q: Name a well-known book in seven letters. Hint: it's spelled as a solid word. And it's so well known that many people can 'quote' from it by heart. Add three letters to the end of this title and the result will name a late writer and TV personality, with four letters in the first name and six letters in the last. What book is it and who is this celebrity?
When I first started working on this puzzle, I thought the quotable book would be the Bible, but that isn't seven letters... I guess you'll just have to wait a week and all will be revealed.
Edit: The clues were there, "first (beginning)", "Bible", "book", "week (7 days)"
A: GENESIS --> GENE SISKEL
