Secret Lives of Great Authors

I'm all about holidays, as you know, and today is Peculiar People Day! In honor of the day, Mental Floss offers up a fun book today: Secret Lives of Great Authors.

Strange-but-true tales of murderers, adulterers, drug addicts, and other literary legends.

Outrageous and uncensored profiles of everyone from William Shakespeare to Thomas Pynchon, Secret Lives of Great Authors tackles all the tough questions your high school teachers were afraid to ask: What’s the deal with Lewis Carroll and little girls? Is it true that J. D. Salinger drank his own urine? How many women—and men—did Lord Byron actually sleep with? And why was Ayn Rand such a big fan of Charlie’s Angels? Classic literature was never this much fun in school!

For some reason I prefer to read authors who DON'T drink their own urine. But that's just me.
