Profile Information

Frigobar Gurbanguly Gandilozogander was born on the nineteenth of December of 1899 in the republic of Ishkheria on the outskirts of Besmislica, the capital of Ishkheria. His father was a milkman and amateur zoologist who died fighting in the Ishkherian Civil War in May of 1903 and his mother died of tuberculosis later the same year. He was put in a refugee camp and was adopted by a rich American couple who took him back to the USA.

Frigobar Gandilozogander is a fascinating individual who has lived an extraordinarily full life. He served in the First World War, Second World War and Korea, traveled most of the United States and a large part of Canada on foot, worked in a wide variety of fields and won the lottery several times.

Although never achieving commercial success as a writer, Gandilozogander did attract the attention of various notable literary critics as being a genius. His period of most "success" was during the mid sixties to early seventies. As said before, he won the lottery several times, but never managed to keep the money because of gambling issues. Even though he is approaching his 110th birthday, he continues to be active and write new material very often. It looks as if there is much more to come from Frigobar Gandilozogander.
