Description

NOT EVEN MY NAME is a rare eyewitness account of the horrors of a little-known, often denied genocide, in which hundreds of thousands of Armenian and Pontic Greek minorities in Turkey were killed during and after World War 1. But NOT EVEN MY NAME is first and foremost Sano Halo's brilliant and mesmerising memoir, written in haunting and eloquent prose that evokes the suspense of the best told tales.show more
