Passage to Ararat

Michael J. Arlen

This 1976 National Book Award winner echoes current headlines as Arlen examines the 1915 “ethnic cleansing” of the Armenian race by the Turks. In Armenia, Arlen comes to understand his father’s detachment from his past when he sees what it means when a people are “hated to death”. A deeply felt, personal memoir with a new introduction by Clark Blaise.
