    DescriptionYet nothing about her family is black and white. Anoush is poised to unravel four generations of war, genocide, love and renewal amongst the relics of her past. In 1915 one million Armenians were marched into Syria by the Turkish and killed in the first genocide of the twentieth century. In 1982 Beirut came under Israeli siege for three months with thousands killed. Anoush's quest for answers is interwoven with the memory of ruined cities and vanished empires: Lake Van before the genocide, Beirut in civil war, Ottoman villas and desecrated churches, Palestinian refugee camps and torture chambers turned into nightclubs. Her search to find out the truth about her father, her grandparents, and her own place in the story spans three generations against the backdrop of war and genocide in the Middle East. With echoes of Barbara's Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible and Geraldine Brooks' People of the Book, Bone Ash Sky is a powerful work that examines family, loyalty, love, and secrets long-hidden in the chaos and horror of war.

    Author Information
    Born in 1973 of Greek and Irish-Australian parentage, Katerina co-founded Sappho Books and then the Gertrude and Alice caf bookstore in Sydney. Her first novel, The Glass Heart, was published by HarperCollins in 2000 and reprinted in 2001, with Greek rights sold the same year. She began Bone Ash Sky with the aid of an Australia Council grant and a residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland and travelled to Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon and Syria for research. In 2010, whilst researching for the book, she published an article in The Australian - 'Turkey must lift veil on "first Holocaust".'
