Hide Profile

Aram Saroyan was born 25 September 1943, the son of playwright William Saroyan and Carol (Marcus) Saroyan, later Carol Matthau . He attended high school at the Trinity School in New York City. He attended college at the University of Chicago, New York University, and Columbia University, but never completed a college degree. In the late 1960s Saroyan experimented with marijuana and began to develop a career as a poet. Director Mike Nichols wanted to cast Saroyan in the lead of his movie The Graduate, but Saroyan walked away from the part in order to focus on his writing. His life experiences at this time are described in his novel, The Street .
