Friedrich Glauser

Yep, I don't have time to write about myself (only two more essays to go!), so read an already-written thing about this cool guy who was also a Glauser and who has a cool picture (see Wikipedia for more info):

Friedrich Charles Glauser (b. February 4, 1896 in Vienna; d. December 8, 1938 in Genoa) was a German-language Swiss writer. He was a morphine and opium addict for most of his life, and begun writing his novel Thumbprint while he was an inmate at Waldau, a Swiss insane asylum.

One of Germany's best-known crime writing awards is the Glauser prize. (I should aim for this. How cool would that be for someone named Glauser to get the Glauser award? Oh wait, I don't like to write about crime.)
