About the book:

April may indeed be the cruelest month, but a striking portrait of Rebecca West along with a biographical sketch will help most readers to hang on until May shows up. This handsome calendar gives the red-carpet treatment to a diverse bunch, including Edgar Allen Poe, Langston Hughes, Gertrude Stein, Dorothy Parker, Boris Pasternak, and William Styron (posed, very fetchingly, in a graveyard). It also marks the birthdays of many others, which leads to some interesting discoveries. Who would have thought that arch-libertine Giovanni Casanova was born on the same day as Hans Christian Andersen? Calendars, like politics, make for strange bedfellows.
