B - Irving Wallace, drugstore novelist of the sixties, is the father of a wrirter of Olympian sized reference books.

Especially a book about the Summer Olympics.

Who took back and uses his zeyda's (grandfather's) last name, which had been Americanized by father Irving.

Name this Summer Olympic book writer, (I will settle for the last name)

G - Leo Rosten Americanized his name as Leonard Q Ross for this book, and I infer for the stories as originally in The New Yorker.
