The Human Comedy by William Saroyan

The place is Ithaca, in Californias San Joaquin Valley. The time is World War II. The family is the Macauleysa mother, sister, and three brothers whose struggles and dreams reflect those of Americas second-generation immigrantsIn particular, fourteen-year-old Homer, determined to become one of the fastest telegraph messengers in the West, finds himself caught between reality and illusion as delivering his messages of wartime death, love, and money brings him face-to-face with human emotion at its most naked and raw. Gentle, poignant and richly autobiographical, this delightful novel shows us the boy becoming the man in a world that even in the midst of war, appears sweeter, safer and more livable than out own.
