The Man With the Heart in the Highlands & Other Early Stories

Author: William Saroyan

Publisher: New Directions

Format: Paperback


Gathered in The Man with the Heart in the Highlands are sixteen stories from William Saroyan's most celebrated  literary period, culled form several long out-of-print collections from the 1930's and '40s. While achieving meteoric success with The Human Comedy and The Time of Your Life, the young Saroyan set the pace with the characters as fresh and compassionate as himself. His voice here is exhilarating, luminous, and completely distinctive-ready to let go with a lusty brash laugh on every page. These stories amply bear out Elizabeth Bowen's opinion that "probably since O. Henry nobody has done more to endear and stabilize the short story."
