William Saroyan

a.k.a. Sirak Gorvan *

Author Code: AWSY

Born: Aug. 31, 1908 - Fresno, California, USA

Died: May 18, 1981 - Fresno, California, USA

Primarily self-educated, Saroyan, the son of Armenian immigrants, worked in a variety of jobs while attempting to become a writer. His first real success came in 1934 with the publication of his short story, The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze, which appeared in Story magazine. In 1940, his short story collection My Name is Aram, became a best-seller. His play The Time of Your Life won the Pulitzer Prize in 1939. During World War II Saroyan served in the US Army and was posted in London for a time, but did not see any combat. In 1943, Saroyan won the Academy Award for the best original story screenplay of The Human Comedy. He became a heavy drinker and gambled most of his earnings away and it wasn't until the 1970's that he finally climbed out of debt. His other works include Three Times Three (1936), The Trouble With Tigers (1938), The Adventures of Wesley Jackson (1946), Tracy's Tiger (1952), Mama I Love You (1956), Papa You're Crazy (1957), Gaston (1962), Armenian (1971), Chance Meetings (1978), Tales From the Vienna Streets (1980) and My Name is Saroyan (1983 Posthumous).
