Boys and Girls Together
|Boys and Girls Together|
Written with Saroyan's trademark clarity and compassion, Boys and Girls Together is a richly comedic portrayal of a couple caught in the toils of marriage with children. A masterful novel of human folly, it focuses on the eagerness of men and women to be something other than themselves.
Saroyan is a startlingly honest writer with an uncluttered style and a uniquely distanced vision of American life. His work gave rise to a new word, "Saroyanesque," and influenced Jack Kerouac and Sean Penn, among others.
