Armenian William Saroyan Silver Coin 



Saroyan, William (1908-1981), American writer, born in
Fresno, California. His early writings frequently deal with his
beloved Armenian family and its capacity for joy in the face of
adversity. Notable among these works are the collection of short
stories My Name Is Aram (1940) and the novel The Human
Comedy (1943). Saroyan's many plays, lyrical and loosely
constructed, include My Heart's in the Highlands, which was
produced to much acclaim in 1939, and The Time of Your Life,
for which he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1940. Saroyan
refused to accept the award for a work he deemed no more
laudable than any of his others.
