London – Cristina Mureșan and Eurolitnetwork.com: Vosganian’s writing is visual and poetic, filled with metaphors and symbols

This is an unputdownable, haunting read that left me with the same shattering feeling I had after visiting Auschwitz or the former Romanian communist prison in Sighet. Originally published in Bucharest in 2009 by Polirom, the book has been translated into over twenty languages and it is a chronicle of the tragic destiny of Armenians, inspired by the stories of Varujan Vosganian’s grandparents, refugees who escaped the Armenian genocide to Romania. Dozens of stories of tradesmen, princes, sc...

U ljubavi i vjeri se šapuće, samo se u mržnji viče I kada se ispovijedaš svećeniku, šapćeš. Šapat je gesta iskrenosti. I u ljubavnoj igri se šapće, samo mržnja viče – rekao je Vosganjan, Suživot konzervativnih i liberalnih mostovaca tek dolazi na pra...

The first echo of the English version of The Book of Whispers: „ one of the most important lessons I ever learned in my life”!

Thoughts While Reading: The Book of Whispers The language of this book is simply stunning.  It is poetry.  It is music that flows over your soul through your eyes.  This brings to mind one of the most important lessons I ever learned in my life:  the way you say something can have tremendous power, either positive or negative.  So much of the time we diminish our words to practically nothing - slang, emojis, text shorthand.  There is no power in the things we say this way.  That is...
