Read full description of the books:
In 96 pages Pilibosian deals with highlights of Armenian history beginning with a comment on the pagan god Vahakn and a poem called "Grandparent Herbs" about the Armenian Genocide of 1915. A number of poems describe Armenian life in the Middle East, and "I Chose the Poetic," finalist in a NEW LETTERS literary competition, details Armenia’s independence of 1991.
Some narrative poems exchange images with the fictitious character Nazeli and present information about Armenia including its birds, its diamond industry and its forests as well as its political past. Thoughts on the Armenian alphabet, Armenian art, Armenians in America, Armenian women and artists such as Arshile Gorky, Mardiros Saryan and Mihran Manoukian follow. A painting by Manoukian is on the cover.
A number of the poems have been published in Ararat, Literary Groong, Borderlands, Icon, Kansas Quarterly and Art Times. Recently, a number of her poems were published in the Heyday Books anthology Forgotten Bread, named for an image in one of her poems.
