Incredible stories by writers who lead with the right brain.

If you’re left-handed, the bad news is you’re also more likely to suffer from allergies, migraines and insomnia than a right-handed person. But you’ll more likely be a gun multi-tasker, be a genius and even earn more. Just watch out for those pesky sinistrophobes. You’ll also have something in common with around 12% of the population, including incredible authors like Mark Twain, Lewis Carroll, Eudora Welty and Franz Kafka. To celebrate International Left-Handers Day (August 13), here are some must-read books by writers who can’t stand the spiral-bound notebooks.
