"William Saroyan's debut collection of stories made a tremendous splash in the literary world, adding an author in love with his own madcap sincerity to a pantheon full of serious-minded modernists. Saroyan, who won (and then refused) the Pulitzer Prize for his play The Time of Your Life, always wrote about humanity, and always on a human scale. He was also one of the first American writers of this century to focus so much attention on immigrant communities. The protagonists sailing about The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze are often Armenian, Jewish, Chinese, Polish, African, or Irish; and all are treated with what The San Francisco Chronicle called "the old Saroyan luminousness, which is to say with an insight as fresh as that of an unusually perceptive child.""--Jacket

My heart's in the Highlands : a play by William Saroyan( Book )

25 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Successfully produced by the Group Theatre in New York City. In Fresno, California, lives a poet who kneels on a stool to write his poems on the head of a barrel, his son turns handsprings outside and wheedles bread and cheese from a stylized grocer. And an old, old man who is an actor and a trumpeter comes to live with them for a while and plays sweet old songs on his horn while the people of Fresno gather around. But the poet's poems come back from the "Atlantic Monthly" and the old man dies, rambling through Shakespeare. The boy is the center of this. He is a gay, ingenious lad and through him the author now and then wonders about life; or hints at wonderment. He hints, too, of war and of love and of the place of money and art in the world. This is a play filled with affection for small people, for the innocents of this world who long dimly for a beauty they but vaguely understand"--Publisher's website
