The imagination in my favorite of Saroyan s pieces drew me to this collection where I explored many stories I previously hadn t heard of and I m damn glad I did Because knowing of Saroyan probably means you re a Lit enthusiast already, there s no point in a longer review, really, but if you re reading this without much knowledge of him, I ll just say thus far he s one of the only authors whose short stories I truly enjoy. This is a solid book I am slapping myself for having not read Saroyan earlier in my life.Analogues for this reader Hemingway Bradbury Heinlein minor John Fante Dostoevsky Bukowski minor, no surprise considering Fante is on the list The voice is closest to Bradbury, and the dialogue is absolutely believable The breadth of his writing present in this Reader is wonderful Like others, I say start with Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze, and go from there, it s just beautiful There is a lot of the Russian authors in his work, and I have no doubt those before Saroyan were an influence Saroyan is Armenian, which means he seems to be innately familiar with straddling two worlds at once, a theme that comes out repeatedly in this reader There is the immigrant in America of Fante, the tell it like it is but also make it beautiful of Hemingway, and the critiques of modern society of Heinlein Not everything in this or any Reader is gold It s not supposed to be a best of, it s a representative collection of stories Saroyan s voice is accessible and easily understood, and you will empathize with the characters, even the bad guys you re supposed t0 It is difficult to review what is, essentially, a collection, so I will simply say that if you enjoy the authors listed above, pick up the Reader If you read Daring Young Man and enjoy it, pick up the Reader I purchased a copy to keep. Saroyan is my favorite writer And this is a decent collection The only problem with it is that it only gives some chapters of novels, excerpts The chapters are not even sequential If you plan on reading Saroyan s novels, The Human Comedy and The Adventures of Wesley Jackson, then you re better off not reading bits and pieces of them first, even if Saroyan s longer works are sometimes episodic. I greatly enjoyed reading two other books by Saroyan, My Name Is Aram and The Human Comedy I looked forward to reading this one, also By the time I was finished, though, I had to agree with a friend of mine I m tired of Saroyan While at times he can be witty and humorous, at other times he just drags This book has some of each of those, but a little bit too much of the latter While I enjoyed reading it, this might just be the last book by Saroyan that I ll bother with. after a few drinks if you read the first bit of the trapeze story you will get goosebumps its so amazingly well written. I don t so much remember what I read of William Saroyan, but just that I have and that he touched my heart and mind His work is high on the list of things I mean to get into.
