A small but mighty story packed with lovely lines and moments. I especially loved this line from the author‘s dedication to his mother: “I have taken all this time to write a story especially for you because I have wanted it to be an especially good story, the very best I might be able to write, and now at last, a little pressed for time, I have tried.”

I absolutely adore this book, actually all of his books. He is so descriptive with his writing his characters are full of life and besides I live here in Fresno where so many of his stories take place. If you haven't read any thing by him please take the time to enjoy him.

“When you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive." -- Pulitzer Prize Winner William Saroyan, who died on this date in 1981. This photo of me and the man was taken by Aaron Spagnolo in Yerevan in 2012.

Bambolina_81 That's a great photo 😊 2y

What my children appear to be on the surface is no matter to me. I am fooled neither by gracious manners nor by bad manners. I am interested in what is truly beneath each kind of manners…I want my children to be people– each one separate– each one special– each one a pleasant and exciting variation of all the others

You must remember always to give, of everything you have. You must give foolishly even. You must be extravagant. You must give to all who come into your life. Then nothing and no one shall have power to cheat you of anything, for if you give to a thief, he cannot steal from you, and he himself is then no longer a thief. And the more you give, the more you will have to give.

Going to read this little book. Saw an interview with Meg Ryan and she has directed a new movie based on this book called Ithaca.

This book is wonderful story called The Human Comedy, all the characters are wonderful but Homer and Ulysses in particular, is based on Saroyan's life, living fatherless with his siblings and his mother. It is based on the real town of Fresno, California, Saroyan's home-town.

I live in the San Joaquin Valley and Mr. Saroyan grew up here I've lived on a couple of the streets mentioned in his books and I think I like these stories because they are about regular people, growing up, being kids, family problems just regular stuff.
