Overview

Friends in the World tells the story of Aram Saroyan’s coming of age as a writer during the turbulent and sometimes madcap 1960s. Carolyn See writes: “From Charlie Mingus to Mike Nichols, from a macrobiotic diet to a natural childbirth without even a midwife (!), Saroyan reminds us: ‘the sixties was about happiness,’ and reprises that gentle emotion for us exquisitely.” With a cast of characters that includes Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac and Ted Berrigan, the book takes us inside an era that changed the way we live. "Smart, reflective and full of the kind of understanding that only comes from experience, Friends in the World reminds us how much we need each other to truly be ourselves," wrote David L. Ulin in the Los Angeles Reader.
