What a delight to find seventeen of Saroyan s uncollected stories within one cover ....charming tales, all blessed with Saroyan s pixieish imagination and magical writing style .Even today they read as though they have been freshly minted from the Saroyan treasure house. A discovery for those who love Saroyan s fiction; his spark is still wonderfully alive. Library Journal
About the Author
William Saroyan (1908-1981) was an internationally renowned Armenian American writer, playwright, and humanitarian. He achieved great popularity in the thirties, forties, and fifties through his hundreds of short stories, plays, novels, memoirs, and essays. In 1939, Saroyan was the first American writer to win both the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for his play "The Time of Your Life". He famously refused to accept the Pulitzer Prize on the grounds that "Commerce should not patronize art." He died near his hometown of Fresno at the age of seventy-two. "The Time of Your Life" was originally published in 1983 by Methuen.
