Hide Profile

Writer, editor and poet Jonathan Cott, was born in 1942, the day before Christmas, in New York City. He attended Columbia University for his undergraduate work, received an M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1966 and studied at the University of Essex, England as a Fulbright fellow, 1967-1969. Returning to the United States in 1970 he became an editor at Rolling Stone until 1975 when he returned to New York to be executive editor of Stonehill Publishing Company. In 1976 Cott wrote a long piece on Maurice Sendak based on extensive interviews with the author, that was published in Rolling Stone in December 1976. The success of that article led Cott to consider interviewing other giants of children's literature for a full-length book. Pipers at the Gates of Dawn was the result.
