Sons Come and Go, Mothers Hang in Forever, 1976 William Saroyan
Sons Come and Go, Mothers Hang in Forever is one of those unforgettable memoirs by William Saroyan--novelist, successful Broadway playwright, story teller extradinary-- always, he wrote, "unable not to defy the odds."
Hard cover. First Edition.
A dreamer, an optimist, Saroyan (1909- 1981) wrote about living and loving. " I seem to insist that people are good, that living is good, that decency is right, that good is not only achievable but inevitable---and there does not appear to be any justification for this." From William Saroyan's Preface to Don't Go Away Mad, 1949, another memoir.
This used book, Sons Come and Go, Mothers Hang in Forever, will surely entertain you while giving you a lot to think about--something good for us today.
The book is in good vintage condition--no marks other than a note from a friend to the owner of this book, no tears in the text. The spine at top and bottom show shelf wear, and the book jacket sporting two fine pictures of Saroyan is frayed at the edges.
The book measures 5 3/4 inches by 8 1/2 inches by 1 inch and has 211 delightful pages of thoughtful observations.
