Synopsis:

”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

A collection of short stories that were originally published in the 1960s and 1970s in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, and Harper's.

About the Author: William Saroyan (1908–1981) was born in Fresno, California. Famous for a long and voluminous career, he wrote novels, along with some sixteen story collections, and plays including The Human Comedy (winning an Academy Award for his screenplay), and The Time of Your Life, for which he won the Drama Critics Circle and Pulitzer Prizes. He wrote about "the archetypal Armenian families who inhabit Saroyan country, in and around Fresno, California. [And yet with their] unpredictable charm and wacky spontaneity ... his characters overflow with so much human comedy that they transcend all ethnic boundaries, as in the stories of I.B. Singer" (The Chicago Tribune).
