Memoir. Cultural Writing. Son and biographer of William Saroyan, Aram Saroyan grew up in a world of celebrities and geniuses. His writings soon placed him among the best known figures in the New York School of poets, and his essays and reviews helped to characterize his generation. STARTING OUT IN THE SIXTIES is a powerful collection of essays, memoirs, and reflections with commentary and anecdotes about publishing, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, Jack Kerouac, the author's Armenian heritage, his famous father, Jerry Brown, and much, much more. Variously humorous, reflective, and profound, Saroyan's book should prove for years to come, a key guide to the taste and literary values of the generation that 'started out in the sixties.'
