Notes:

The book is dedicated to Whit Burnett and Martha Foley. Burnett and Foley, married at the time, were the founders of Story Magazine, which first published the story The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze

The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze and other stories was Saroyan's first book. it was named after his story "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze" that ran in Story Magazine in February, 1934. 

The book became a best-seller, establishing Saroyan as a rising star. 

Review by the St. Louis Star and Times: "He expresses, in compressed, simple but eloquent language, the psychology of being without a sob; the business of growIng up; the sensitiveness of a young man who is thoroughly alive."
