Saroyan’s debut collection of stories. A timeless selection of brilliant short stories that won William Saroyan a position among the foremost, most widely popular writers of America when it first appeared in 1934.With the greatest of ease William Saroyan flew across the literary skies in 1934 with the publication of The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze and Other Stories. One of the first American writers to describe the immigrant experience in the U.S., Saroyan created characters who were Armenians, Jews, Chinese, Poles, Africans, and the Irish. The title story touchingly portrays the thoughts of a very young writer, dying of starvation. All of the tales were written during the great depression and reflect, through pathos and humor, the mood of the nation in one of its greatest times of want.

Product Description: They volunteered. For a variety of reasons-patriotic, altruistic, mercenary, or just "for the hell of it"--Nearly three hundred U.S. servicemen and a couple of female nurses volunteered to fight a war in a place they knew little about. Recruited at military bases around the country, the members of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) set off for the unknown in the summer and fall of 1941. While U.S. support for the Allied cause was growing at a steady pace, most Americans still felt distanced from the conflict enveloping Europe and Asia and did not want to go to war. At the highest levels of the government, however, entering the war appeared inevitable. The AVG was one way of gaining experience in this vicious war, while increasing support for the nations fighting the Axis powers. Despite incredible odds against them from numerically superior Japanese forces and a near complete lack of supply and replacement parts, they took the first successful fight to the Japanese during a time of Japan's unrelenting successes. It was not pretty, and their legend has eclipsed the reality, but the reality of the AVG is still an amazing story. Led by Claire Lee Chennault, they made history.

Elisabeths Gift Reader Reviews "First, (the) book is extraordinary. I got it primarily to learn about a time in Crete that I have only heard in broad generalities. You do that very well and I can now better understand and visualize what actually happened at that time. I had no idea what you personally went through. Your descriptions make the moment come alive and they are emotional for the reader. It is an exceptional experience." --Andrew Manatos Former Assistant Secretary of Commerce, Carter Administration President, Manatos and Manatos, Washington D.C. Elisabeths Gift is a book that one does not leaf through it easily. Every page requires your attention. It wants to talk to you, to narrate an entire life --Archbishop (late) of North and South American Iakovos This book tells the story of his (John Psarouthakis) early life. It is the chronicle of an orphan raised by a wise and loving Aunt Elisabeth who recognized his great ability-and developed in him the qualities of disciple and character that turned nobility into accomplishment. --Professor Paul E. Gray President and Chairman (ret), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
