Happy birthday, Ken Follett; Craig Rice; Ivy Compton-Burnett.

A trio of birthdays to celebrate: Ken Follett (Eye of the Needle author now writing on more religious themes) turns 59 today; Craig Rice (Home Sweet Homicide, etc.), the only mystery writer to appear on the cover of Time magazine, marks a centenary today; and British novelist Ivy Compton-Burnett, whose work has been reissued by New York Review of Books Classics, was born today in 1884.
