BANCOOP AND THE BONES OF THE MAMMOTH
By Gostan Zarian, Translated by Ara Baliozian
Bancoop and the Bones of the Mammoth provides insightful meditations on such topics as the role of the artist in society, the decline of the West, the situation of the Armenians in their diaspora. It contains sharply etched and penetrating portraits of such eminent figures in 20th century Armenian literature as Shirvanzadeh and Charents (who appear here as Shamakhian and Charcharian), and encounters and conversations with many other fascinating characters.
