Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of 55 letters from Saroyan totaling 153 pages and 36 letters and cards from Weisberg. The letters are intensely literary and show a side of Saroyan that becomes virtually invisible to documentation after his popular success in 1934. (Notes taken from dealer Peter B. Howard's description)
Goldie Weisberg was a fellow writer whose work Saroyan had discovered in a literary magzine. Saroyan initiated the correspondence, which focuses on their respective reading, writing, and work lives.
