Book of Adam, The: A Novel
By Hakob Karapents, Translated by Ara Ghazarians
The Book of Adam is the story of every Diaspora Armenian uprooted from the ancestral hearth, whether by choice or by force of social and political upheavals, and thrust into the whirlwind of history and choppy seas of international developments. A literary gem of the late 20th century Diaspora Armenian literature, The Book of Adam is hailed by prominent Armenian literary figures as Hakob Karapents' masterpiece and crowning achievement. Although originally published in 1983 in Eastern Armenian, the thoughts, sentiments, and views portrayed in the novel are as timely and as true as ever.
