William Saroyan (1908-1981) was born in Fresno, California into an immigrant family from Bitlis. He lived in poverty throughout his childhood and adolescence and was largely self-educated. Although his first language was Armenian, Saroyan wrote in English, starting 1933. Until the 1970s, Saroyan produced a large number of literary works, including short stories, novels, and plays, thus securing for himself an honorable place in American literature. “My name is Aram,” “Human comedy,” “Boys and girls,” “My heart is in the highlands,” “Time of your life” are just a few of his many volumes. Certain Armenian elements, as well as Armenian questions are sometimes present in Saroyan’s work.
