As far as good books, there are a few out there you really should read. One is Passage to Ararat, by Michael Arlen. It is really interesting, you will love it. It is about an American of Armenian descent who really doesn't know anything about Armenia, but he goes for a long visit and writes this book full of his impressions. Another, Rise the Euphrates is a well written book by Carol Edgarian about the Armenian experience in America, the conflicts of assimilation. It had really great reviews and was very meaningful and a little painful for me since it hit so close to home. Forty Days of Musa Dagh by Franz Werfel is a great novel, it was a bestseller in a few languages and is about a village of Armenians who resisted the Turks for 40 days during the genocide. Another book, which is written by Raffi, the guy I was named after, is extremely hard to find in English, but I have a rare copy of his most famous novel Khent' (The Lunatic) which I have scanned in. And of course there are many others including Saroyan who has written many great books. His The Human Comedy was just beautiful. Black Dog Of Fate by Peter Balakian is supposed to be quite good too, it is new and I have not had a chance to read it yet. If you haven't read the Kurt Vonnegut book, Bluebeard, it comes highly recommended. I just read it and enjoyed it quite a bit. It is the fictional autobiography of an Armenian man.
