Paris: A new book by Ara Baliozian titled PERTINENTES / IMPERTINENCES has just come out in a French translation by Mireille Besnilian, Denis Donikian, and Dalita Roger. It is a collection of his most recent observations and reflections on our history and the manner in which it has shaped our character and identity as a nation.
Ara Baliozian was born in Athens, Greece, and educated in Venice, Italy. Widely published in English and Armenian, he has been awarded many prizes and grants for his literary work in several genres. His books include THE GREEK POETESS AND OTHER WRITINGS, ARMENIA OBSERVED: AN ANTHOLOGY, FRAGMENTED DREAMS: ARMENIANS IN DIASPORA, and the best-selling study, THE ARMENIANS: THEIR HISTORY AND CULTURE. His translations of such Armenian classics as Grigor Zohrab, Zabel Yessayan, and Kostan Zarian have been described as “valuable,” “eloquent,” and “brilliant” contributions to world literature. “I read everything Ara Baliozian writes with fascination and gratitude,” William Saroyan has said.
The book can be ordered from Denis Donikian at firstname.lastname@example.org in France, and from Mkrtich Matevosian at email@example.com in Armenia. ($20.00 includes postage and handling).
