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

Fiction by William Saroyan

Gathered in The Man with the Heart in the Highlands are sixteen stories from William Saroyan’s most celebrated literary period, culled from several long out-of-print collections from the 1930s and ’40s, While achieving meteoric success with The Human Comedy and The Time of Your Life, the young Saroyan set the pace with 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.”
