Books by William Saroyan

William Saroyan is a special, magical writer. Our favorite is the first chapter of My Name Is Aram. If you read only one thing of Saroyan, read this.

We are also impressed by The Human Comedy. Imagine a young boy's job delivering telegrams to parents informing them their son died in WWII. It's a very good book. The writing style is simple and easy. Imagine your grandparents telling you great stories that you'll always remember. That's William Saroyan. How does he do it? We wish we knew.

We also offer the script of The Time of Your Life. This is a strange play with a strange history. It has very little plot but a lot of character. The fact that it won a Pulitzer Prize tells you a lot about the times in which it was written.

A film was made of the play bankrolled by and starring James Cagney. Cagney, the main character, spends 90% of the entire film sitting at a table in the middle of a bar. When asked to dance, he declines saying he never learned to dance very well. Imagine that. The film is so strange you'll want to see it several times. It made us want to read the script and learn more about the first production.

Following is a list of books by and about Saroyan. We highly recommend him.
