Other literary forms
At the beginning of his literary career, while in Paris, Christopher Logue (lohg) did a certain amount of hack work for Olympia Press, including a pornographic novel, Lust (1954). On returning to London, he worked for the satirical magazine Private Eye, and a number of his pieces have been compiled in Christopher Logue’s True Stories from Private Eye (1972) and Christopher Logue’s Bumper Book of True Stories (1980).
Logue became engaged in writing film and theater scripts and in translating. His translation The Seven Deadly Sins (1986), unfortunately, did not gain the approval of the Bertolt Brecht estate. He also became interested in children’s literature, writing children’s verse and editing a number of anthologies of children’s verse, including The Children’s Book of Children’s Rhymes (1986).
