The foremost name of Armenian origin in American literature, William Saroyan does not need an introduction. Some of the best stories and excerpts from his novels are showcased in this anthology, part of a collection called “California Legacy.” Even if today his name has been relegated to the second tier of American literature, Saroyan’s work continues to belong to the first. “Through his plays, shorts stories, and novels, he exalted the mysteries of youth, pondered the impossibility of love, and spoke to this strange condition of being alive. Above all, he declared that the duty of a writer is to have one hell of a good time” (from the back cover).
