"The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze by William Saroyan, 1934 During this delirious reading we realize the full dimensions of his problem: he is a writer who will starve to death in a society that defines its primary values in writing.

Though I'm not a fan of Saroyan's novels, as a short-story author few can beat him. He has no interest in politics, progress, civilization, history, justice, or anything beyond his mantra: Try to be alive.

Etwas ist schiefgegangen. I often felt that someone was talking to me.His tone is amazing.

Excellent and unflinching work by a writer whose anger worked with his depth and perception to create torrid prose that burned with insight. But as Saroyan points out such a death amounts to nothing less than a new life that is "dreamless, unalive, perfect."

I loved the storiessome of the stories had more impact than others.

I discovered Saroyan by reading Jack Kerouac.

The Sunday midnight shows do a thriving business, and the people go back to their homes, sick with the sickness of frustration; it is this that makes the city so interesting at night: the people emerging from the theaters, smoking cigarettes and looking desperate, wanting much, the precision, the glory, all the loveliness of life: wanting what is finest and getting nothing.

What makes Saroyan stand out to me his unabashed sentimentality- that combined with wit, humor, and prodigious talent (I believe he wrote this when he was twenty three or something) make for one great writer, and one great humanist.

Like "Seventy Thousand Assyrians," "Aspirin Is a Member of the NRA," "Common Prayer," and others, "The Daring Young Man" has for its main character a writer and as a central aspect of its plot the problem of how to write when neither the inner self nor the external environment will cooperate.
