Praise

“Gripping and thought-provoking … Spare and elegant … This moving testimony transcend politics and brings the Armenian tragedy to life with tenderness as well as sadness.”—Independent

“A striking memoir.”—Irish Times

“A compelling and beautifully written account of family stories and secrets, and a heartfelt call to peace and harmony.”—Elif Shafak

My Grandmother … refuses to be sidetracked by the issues it raises: it is a tribute to the woman, an expression of shared pain, and a plea for reconciliation. That it was a bestseller in Turkey should tell you something.”—Guardian

“Sober and heartbreaking.”—Financial Times

“The author’s acute sensibility and ear for detail set this account apart … two brave voices ring through this book: hers and her grandmother’s.”—New Internationalist

“This is a story that cries out to be told.”—Tribune
