From dead.atyourage.com, I’ve outlived:
D.H. Lawrence by about two weeks. He was a prolific author who wrote about the effects of modernity and is best known for his sensual novels. He died of tuberculosis on March 2, 1930. (Oddly enough, I’m rereading my D.H. Lawrence collection on Kindle right now.)
You’ve outlived Nicholas Rowe by three weeks. He was a playwright, translator, editor of William Shakespeare and Poet Laureate of 1715
Anton Chekhov was more than a month younger than you when he died of a heart attack on July 2, 1904. He was a Russian doctor whose short stories and plays influenced generations of later authors.
Well, goodness. I suppose I should finish my novels instead of having a midlife crisis then, hmmm?
