Which Author Shares Your Birthday?

Ever wonder which author shares your birthday?

This interactive Author's calendar is the kind of thing that will ensure enough entertainment and time-wasting on days when you don't feel like doing anything particular or productive in office. Who can resist the temptation of doing the entirely pointless exercise of finding out the author they share their birthday with? And once that is done, what about your friends? And colleagues? And imagine how much you start believing in divinity and agree that maybe there really is some meaning and purpose to our existence when you discover that your evil boss and Thomas Hardy were born on the same day and that slimy project manager who drones on and on in interminable meetings shares his birthday so aptly with Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust.

Find out which author shares your birthday.

And then ponder on the significance of it.

Meanwhile let me figure out the import of sharing my birthday with Leon Trotsky and Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones).
