This is not the story of a survivor, since its author had left his native village of Odour, in Western Armenia, in 1913, and was living in the United States when the Armenian Genocide began. However, he suffered the loss of his wife, two children, and many other family relatives. The book reflects the vicissitudes he experienced through an eclectic mix of autobiography, letters from home, soliloquies, dream sequences, reminiscences, poems, lamentations, and solitary thoughts.
