Overview
When Orhan s brilliant and eccentric grandfather, Kemal Turkoglu, who built a dynasty out of making "kilim" rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But Kemal has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Intent on righting this injustice, Orhan unearths a story that, if told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan s family is built, a story that could unravel his own future. Breathtaking and expansive . . . Proof that the past can sometimes rewrite the future. Christina Baker Kline, author of "Orphan Train" Stunning . . . At turns both subtle and transcendent. "Los Angeles Review of Books" To take the tumultuous history of Turks and Armenians in the early part of this century, and to tell the stories of families and lovers from the small everyday moments of life to the terrible journeys of death, to make a novel so engrossing and keep us awake that is an accomplishment, and Aline Ohanesian s first novel is such a wonderful accomplishment. Susan Straight, author of "Highwire Moon " Rich, tragic, compelling, and realized with deep care and insight. "Elle" A book with a mission, giving a voice to history s silent victims. "The New York Times Book Review" "Orhan s Inheritance" illuminates human nature while portraying a devastating time in history . . . A remarkable debut novel that exhibits an impressive grasp of history as well as narrative intensity and vivid prose. "Minneapolis Star Tribune" A remarkable debut from an important new voice. It tells us things we thought we knew and shows us we had no idea. Beautiful and terrible and, finally, indelible. Luis Alberto Urrea, author of "Queen of America" "
