9780060151416: Saroyan: A Biography

Along with Ernest Hemingway, William Saroyan, winner of a Pulitzer Prize in drama for "The Time of Your Life" and an Academy Award for the screenplay of "The Human Comedy," was the most well-known American writer of the 1930s and 1940s. Lawrence Lee and Barry Gifford heard Saroyan's story first-hand from Carol Matthau, the wife he rejected; the son and daughter he alternately smothered and pushed away; and colleagues like Artie Shaw, Celeste Holm, and Lillian Gish. Their revelations bring new depth to Saroyan's riveting story.

Review:

"A well-rounded, objective account of the life and character of this much-admired, much-maligned man. . . . Gifford and Lee let their research do the talking, largely eschewing judgment in order to build a documentary mosaic of testimony. . . . The best available picture of this major American writer."--"San Francisco Chronicle
