Otto Soglow

"Pronounced 'sog' as in hog; 'low' as in glow'."

b. 1900 in Yorkville, a section of Manhattan. Went to PS 77 at 86th and First Ave, then to Stuyvesant High School; upon graduation, he became, by succession, a packer, a shipping clerk, a dishwasher, a switchboard operator (a job he held for two hours), and an errand boy.

In a 1948 publication, Soglow reported that "I am a typical New Yorker. I don't exercise. It isn't that I don't approve of it; I just don't recognize it. I like to wander around the garden of my summer place up in Westchester and pick Japanese beetles and count them. Garden? What for?"

The jacket to the American edition of his 1933 The Little King is exceedingly scarce. I've seen two in my lifetime.
