I'm not sure about local colr, but the ideas and concepts Saroyan expresses as an author are directly related to his own experiences as a child. He'd lived in an orphanage and has always felt abandoned; his greatest desire was to be included rather than isolated. He uses the town of Ithaca (fictional) to represent the town he grew up in (Fresno).
