About this Item

293 p. Endpaper map. In "Passage to Ararat, " which received the National Book Award in 1976, Michael J. Arlen goes beyond the portrait of his father, the famous Anglo-Armenian novelist of the 1920s, that he created in Exiles to try to discover what his father had tried to forget: Armenia and what it meant to be an Armenian, a descendant of a proud people whom conquerors had for centuries tried to exterminate. But perhaps most affectingly, Arlen tells a story as large as a whole people yet as personal as the uneasy bond between a father and a son, offering a masterful account of the affirmation and pain of kinship. Very good in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. Signed on fep. DJ has minor wear and soiling, and rear flap creased. Minor page soiling. Bookseller Inventory # 66410
