The time is World War II. The family is the Macauley's -- a mother, sister, and three brothers whose struggles and dreams reflect those of America's second-generation immigrants. In particular, fourteen-year-old Homer, determined to become one of the fastest telegraph messengers in the West, finds himself caught between reality and illusion as delivering his messages of wartime death, love, and money brings him face-to-face with human emotion at its most naked and raw.

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.""--BOOK JACKET+-+K018676635128916ocn000286061book19580.31Saroyan, WilliamThe William Saroyan readerThis is the most complete and generous sampling of the first half of an indispensable American writer's career+-+246553410695618ocn001377820book19390.39Saroyan, WilliamThree plays93312ocn009043156book19830.25Saroyan, WilliamMy name is Saroyan93040ocn034643576book19300.39Saroyan, WilliamThe time of your lifeDramaA programme text edition published in conjunction with the Finborough Theatre to coincide with the centenary of the birth of William Saroyan, The Time of Your Life runs from 26 November - 20 December.

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 website52013ocn000899388book19480.47Saroyan, WilliamThe Saroyan special : selected short storiesFiction5145ocn000005612book19690.29Saroyan, WilliamLetters from 74 rue Taitbout; or, Don't go, but if you must, say hello to everybody26055ocn005755567book19430.22Saroyan, WilliamThe human comedyJuvenile worksFictionBildungsromansWidow and three orphan children in small California town make a go of life22432ocn000174898book19650.28Lewis, AllanAmerican plays and playwrights of the contemporary theatreHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc18039ocn000711817book19660.28Floan, Howard RWilliam SaroyanCriticism, interpretation, etcProvides in-depth analysis of the life, works, career, and critical importance of William Saroyan14001ocn000270230book19570.33Krutch, Joseph WoodThe American drama since 1918; an informal historyCriticism, interpretation, etc13681ocn000964373book19500.39Wilson, EdmundClassics and commercials: a literary chronicle of the fortiesCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+721170928511205ocn003414325book19780.23Saroyan, WilliamChance meetingsBiography11178ocn000246625book19720.27Saroyan, WilliamPlaces where I've done timeBiography10971ocn000248358book19670.35French, Warren GThe thirties: fiction, poetry, dramaCriticism, interpretation, etc10769ocn010606375book19840.28Lee, LawrenceSaroyan : a biographyBiographyA biography of the popular author follows his career from his first success to his death, detailing Saroyan's rise and fall, and noting the place in his life of ambition, anti-Semitism and compulsive gambling+-+344867570510211ocn000668114book19730.47Pells, Richard HRadical visions and American dreams; culture and social thought in the Depression yearsHistory"The Great Depression of the 1930s was more than an economic catastrophe to many American writers and artists. Attracted to Marxist ideals, they interpreted the crisis as a symptom of a deeper spiritual malaise that reflected the dehumanizing effects of capitalism, and they advocated more sweeping social changes than those enacted under the New Deal. In Radical Visions and American Dreams, Richard Pells discusses the work of Lewis Mumford, John Dewey, Reinhold Niebuhr, Edmund Wilson, and Orson Welles, among others. He analyzes developments in liberal reform, radical social criticism, literature, the theater, and mass culture, and especially the impact of Hollywood on depression-era America. By placing cultural developments against the background of the New Deal, the influence of the American Communist Party, and the coming of World War II, Pells explains how these artists and intellectuals wanted to transform American society, yet why they wound up defending the American Dream. A new preface enhances this classic work of American cultural history."--p.
