The world of William Saroyan by Nona Balakian( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fact, this is more than a book on Saroyan. Tracing the progression of his work, Balakian reconstructs the total climate of the era in which Saroyan's varied talents emerged, and eventually reveals his inability to cope with the post-World War II world. Waiting like a pre-Beckett character for a future that never was to be, Saroyan used his reminiscences of the past in quite a different way from Proust: running through the memories of an average man on a bicycle rather than as an aristocrat in a cloistered abode. Propelled by the peripeties, the advances and retreats, of an unprotected life, he gave a new twist to the writing of biography
