Anthony Burgess

On this day in 1993 Anthony Burgess, author of the violent and unpleasant novel “A Clockwork Orange”, died, thirty four years later than advertised! He had been diagnosed with a brain tumour in 1959 at which time doctors gave him less than a year to live. Isn’t it great when you can prove them wrong like that!
