“Reading these poems is a complex pleasure. Those which narrate the small sensory act, or the evocation of place, are haunted with histories and oppressions; and those which address those oppressions directly often have a simple clarity, like the ringing of a bell.” Highly recommended.
“This book is a truly powerful collaboration. The beauty and tragedy of Armenia unfold, and by the end one shares in the profound sense of attachment and love which the poets and artists feel for this country. To engage with it is a deeply moving experience.“
“A fascinating collection. Here we read of hopes and lamentations; there we read how to open and eat a pomegranate, or how sounds are coaxed from a duduk. The particular shares space with the eternal, and the disquiet, and joy, of the individual heart find echoes in the heart of a nation.“
Michael W. Thomas
