Garin K. Hovannisian’s debut memoir, Family of Shadows: A Century of Murder, Memory, and the Armenian American Dream, has been released by New York publisher HarperCollins on September 21, Armenian Independence Day. “One of modern history’s great unexamined stories,” hails David Ignatius of the Washington Post. “Family of Shadows will move you with the intensity and intimacy of its detail.” “Engrossing and inspiring,” raves Booklist. Hovannisian is the great-grandson of Kaspar Hovannisian, survivor of the Armenian Genocide, grandson of Prof. Richard Hovannisian, the pioneer of Armenian studies in the United States, and the son of Raffi Hovannisian, the first foreign minister of Armenia. He is a graduate of UCLA and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and the recipient of the Fulbright Fellowship in Creative Writing.
FAMILY OF SHADOWS A Century of Murder, Memory, and the Armenian American Dream
Garin Hovannisian tells one of modern history’s great unexamined stories. Whether you are an Armenian American like me or come to this story anew, Family of Shadows will move you with the intensity and intimacy of its detail. The Hovannisian family lived the story of the extinction and resurrection of the Armenian nation, and we are lucky that Garin Hovannisian has put it all down on paper so that the world can understand.
David Ignatius, columnist for The Washington Post and author of Body of Lies
With what one can only describe as an artistic skill, Garin Hovannisian interleaves the micro-story of his resilient family with the macro-narrative of the Armenian Genocide. One swiftly learns to appreciate the true meaning of the word ‘indestructible’.
