PRESS RELEASE / NEW BOOK
********************************************

Moscow. THE HORRIBLE SILENCE by Ara Baliozian,
has just come out in a Russian translation by
Ara Hakopian and Tigran Zakoyan. It is an
autobiographical novella wherein we read about
the author’s daily existence in a distant
Canadian town: his encounters and conversations
with friends, relatives, neighbors, and members
of his family, about his life in Greece, Italy,
and about Armenians and the Armenian Diaspora.

In addition to the novella, the reader will find
here a comparative fictional study of the life
and achievements of two Armenian personalities
titled BILL AND BASIL, Bill being William
Saroyan, and Basil, the founder of the mightiest
imperial dynasty in Byzantium. The book also
contains selected passages from another book by
Ara Baliozian titled PAGES FROM MY DIARY.

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. He is a
regular contributor to many publications in the
United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East.

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. He has himself
been translated into French, German, Greek,
Spanish, and Armenian.

“I read everything Ara Baliozian writes with
fascination and gratitude,” William Saroyan has
said.
