Fiction. Poetry. Essays. Culturing Writing. This outstanding collection of literature from seventeen first-generation Armenian American authors, each introduced by a member of the second generation, is intense, magical, and filled with the love of life. It is also characterized by the unspeakable sadness that accompanies the loss of many of their countrymen and women in the Armenian genocide of 1915 to 1917. What coalesces is a deeply American story about the forces that propel individuals forward in a new world. FORGOTTEN BREAD includes the writing of William Saroyan, Michael J. Arlen, A. I. Bezzerides, and other first-generation Armenian American writers. Accompanying essays are by writers including Mark Arax, Aris Janigian, Aram Saroyan, and David Stephen Calonne.
