KIRKUS REVIEW

A varied and unusual life story of an Armenian who lived through massacre, revolution, migrations, from the old country, where a strongly knit family life was smashed with the Turkish mass through brief experience in adoption by the Turkx, escape and return to his country, and reunion with his family through some Greeks. Then followed rootless touring of schools, participation in proletarian ideas in Germanic precepts of self-godliness, army life, where destitution and hunger inflamed his nationalism, his devotion to his country now a Socialist Soviet Republic...Finally America and the agricultural college at Ken State, Manhattan, where practical farm experience gave him familiarity with his new land and identity with its people....Another angle on the making of an American, simple unaffectedly emotional, with no attempt at the nalve humor that distinguishes Anything Can Nappen.
