April 9: Completes Appointment in Samarra.
April 11: Dies at Linebrook.
April 14: Publishes My Turn.
April 29: Birth of Grace Brock Caldwell (Tate) in A Rage to Live.
I think A Rage to Live was a turning point in his career, where he elevated to a higher level in the quality of his writing and stayed on that leverl (with a few exceptions) until his death. A Rage to Live is one of my favorite novels, and I think the critics never did it justice.
