Inspirational words by William Saroyan

Inspirational words by William Saroyan

Let me share these inspirational words by William Saroyan to start the year.

These beautiful words by William Saroyan have been wrongly attributed to Ernest Hemingway on Pinterest.

Saroyan published them in a book called “The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze”.

For those who never heard of William Saroyan, he was among the most reputed American writers of the early 20th century. He won a Pulitzer Prize, an Oscar, and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award.

In his books, William Saroyan tells stories about the challenges and delights of rural America through the lens of life in the Central Valley of California.

As Stephen Fry put it: “He is one of the most underrated writers of the century. He takes his place naturally alongside Hemingway, Steinbeck and Faulkner.”

American Authors were my dad’s favorites. That’s all he read and he was reading a lot. He could easily go through 3 to 5 books a week. He used to have a mood board in his bedroom with pictures of all his favorite American Authors.

What are your favorite American Authors?
