  1. A heart warming story about life and relationship between father and son Philosophical, with a grain of sadness and naivety and so simple.I think I m going to call my dad.

  2. In 1956, William Saroyan published a book he d written for his daughter Lucy, written from her perspective He called it Mama, I Love You The following year there was another one for his 10 year old son Aram, and this is it It s hard to say which one I like , because they re pretty different daughter hanging out with mom, son hanging out with dad , but they re both essential for Saroyan fans, or any fan of books with lovable characters saying and doing kind, interesting things.Papa, You re Crazy [...]

  3. As always, Saroyan writes about writers and writing This novel, however, mantains an innoncence that keeps the cleverness from getting out of hand A kind of pre coming of age story, it lays the seeds of maturity without bringing them to a fullness.

  4. A man who is a writer and his son Aram, who is ten years old, hang out together at the father s beach shack The father gives his son tips about life and about how to become a writer This man is divorced from Aram s mother and the son, who had been living with his mother and sister, asked to go live with his father for a week In another of his short autobiographical novels, Saroyan charmed me, as he always does I liked the talks they had, the foods they prepared and ate together, such as writer s [...]

  5. Finally got my hands on the book i ve been dreaming about reading after seeing a one man performance on stage by a British actor during HayFest theatre festival Actually that was the time I started reading Saroyan, and I ve been admiring him ever since His stories, so simple yet so wise and beautiful.The bond of a father and a son pictured here is very touching.I started reading this book and there was a moment that I needed dropping it Had I finished it months ago, I d probably have given it 5s [...]

  6. Interesting conversations between father and son put in many smaller stories It is interesting to read the stories because as I believe they are written from the son s perspective who is around 10 years old You can see how the kid is looking at the world and understands the things that are happening around him and looks for explanations from his father who tries to be as much real with him as possible Interesting read.

  7. Exactamente lo que un padre amante de la literatura y escritor quisiera decirle a su hijo a para que pueda admirar el mundo con una mirada diferente y plasmarlo en la temida hoja en blancoMucha identificaci n de mi parte con los personajes, sobre todo por las edades, que son justo la m a y la de mi hija mayor 45 10 Algunos excelentes pasajes y frases Un trabajo dif cil por el hecho de tratar de evitar caer en la frontera de libro demasiado moralista o incluso de auto ayuda La le en una traducci [...]

  8. Philosophy as told by a ten year old is sweet and naively accurate The relationship between father and son is admirable, but the lessons to be gained by the reader are the real reason this book should be continuously published and read.

  9. Nijak m to nenadchlo A filozofick e i t ty m vyt ely, asi jsem v tom nena la to kouzlo, kdyby mi takhle rodi e odpov dali na moje d tsk ot zky, asi bych byla hodn vy inut d t Ale jim to tak asi vyhovovalo a vztah m li p kn , no.

  10. Oh, how I would love to make time to revisit all these childhood books I have no idea what this one was about, but I m sure I enjoyed it.
