Review:

'William Saroyan's sprawling, elegant, elegiac, of-all-life-in-a-Frisco-honky-tonk 1939 Pulitzer Prize winner The Time of Your Life.' Evening Standard, (1 December 2008) 'A refreshing hymn to human goodness.' Guardian, (2 December 2008) 'Saroyan celebrates life in all its variegated oddity without creating anything so ordered as a plot... [His] play has a genuine love of hobo eccentricity and convinces you that it really is a wonderful world.' Guardian, (2 December 2008) '[Saroyan] anticipates one of the great themes of postwar 20th-century drama, which finds its consummation in Beckett: life as an endless process of waiting.' Guardian, (2 December 2008) 'Behind the play's whimsy lurks a genuine detestation of power, money and materialism.' Guardian, (2 December 2008)

About the Author:

William Saroyan (19081981) was an internationally renowned Armenian American writer, playwright, and humanitarian. He achieved great popularity in the thirties, forties, and fifties through his hundreds of short stories, plays, novels, memoirs, and essays. In 1939, Saroyan was the first American writer to win both the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for his play The Time of Your Life. He famously refused to accept the Pulitzer Prize on the grounds that "Commerce should not patronize art." He died near his hometown of Fresno at the age of seventytwo. The Time of Your Life was originally published in 1983 by Methuen.
