Aram Garoghlanian was a Californian, born in Fresno on the other side of the Southern Pacific tracks. But he was also part of a large, sprawling family of immigrant Armenians--a whole tribe of eccentric uncles, brawling cousins, and gentle women. Through these unforgettable, often hilarious characters Aram comes to understand life, courage, and the power of dreams. Whether it is fierce Uncle Khosrove who yells Pay no attention to it in any situation, Uncle Melik, who tries to grow pomegranate trees in the desert, or angelic-looking Cousin Arak who gets Arma into classroom scrapes, Arams visions are shaped and colored by this tum-of-the-century clan. Like Sherwood Andersons Winesburg, Ohio, William Saroyans brilliant short stories in My Name Is Aram work together to create a picture of a time, a place, and a boys world-a truly classic account of an impoverished family newly arrived in America-rich in matters of the heart.
