Omar Willey was born at St. Frances Cabrini Hospital in Seattle and grew up near Lucky Market on Beacon Avenue. He believes Seattle is the greatest city on Earth and came to this conclusion by travelling much of the Earth. He is a junior member of the Lesser Seattle society and, as an oboist, does not blow his own trumpet.
Remembering the truth of the sign in Left Bank Books, "If you liked school, you'll love work," Omar Willey looks back on the indoctrination process.
