Young Toivo, the son of a stonecutter was born in I902 in the coastal town of Kotka in southeast Finland. His family, poor and uneducated, was a wholly proletarian type of family but one in which fundamental human values were held in deep respect. As he gradually became aware of life, Pekkanen found himself bewildered by changing family relationships and taunted by an engulfing loneliness, but at the same time he was enraptured by books and eager to be alone to dream. More and more he escaped into the world of books, reading ravenously, until the necessity to help keep the family alive by working left little time or energy for anything else. He began his working life by substituting for his mother, joining the group of old women pulling weeds from between the cobblestones in the street, but later he applied the skill he had learned at school and became a metalworker in a factory. Pekkanen continued as a metalworker ~writing every chance he had~until 1932, when he won immediate renown as a spokesman for the Finnish proletariat with his novel Tehtaan varjossa (In the Shadow of the Mills). With this success, he was able to spend all his time as a writer. Pekkanen's books, depicting contemporary life in Finland from the standpoint of ordinary people, grew in scope, and he began a cycle of novels describing Kotka from its founding to the present. A cerebral stroke in 1948 left him with amnesic aphasia, but he struggled, word by word, to relearn his language and in time was able to resume his writing. The completion of the third part of his Kotka epic proved to be too much of an effort, however, and he turned again to short stories. In 1953 Lapsuuteni appeared, followed in 1955 by his last book~a volume of poems published two years before his death. Bookseller Inventory # 2171504
