What Books Were Bestsellers the Day You Were Born?
It’s your own personal literary zodiac, but what does it mean? For instance, I was born under the tropic of Return of the Jedi, John le Carré’s Little Drummer Girl, and Stephen King’s Christine. But lower down on the list is Jean M. Auel’s Valley of Horses, which is probably why at sleepaway camp 12 years later I memorized sexy passages from its predecessor, Clan of the Cave Bear. And I paraphrase: He was rough with her, but gentle, and they were wearing loincloths, and he removed her loincloth, etc. Clan of the Cave Bear. Page 9,09,439. Look it up. Life-changing.
