Description
In A Fatal Night, Mikayel Shamtanchian--one of the guiding lights of Constantinople's lost generation of Armenian intellectuals--renders a profoundly nuanced psychological portrait of innocent men who experienced the indignities and uncertainties of exile before being massacred.

Shamtanchian survived the carnage and went on to bequeath to future generations the moving image of poet Siamanto sitting dejectedly across the desk of a deceitful Ottoman police chief; the shadows of Roupen Zartarian, Karekin Khajag and other intellectuals who perished in the interior of Anatolia; the wistful echoes of "Der Voghormia," [Lord, Have Mercy]; and the harrowing pangs of Varoujan and Sevag as they were slaughtered in a killing field called Ayash.

Written with a poetic sensibility that draws strength from the most dreadful circumstances, The Fatal Night is a haunting and lyrical literary masterpiece.

The Fatal Night: An Eyewitness Account of the Extermination of Armenian Intellectuals in 1915
Mikayel Shamtanchian; translated from Armenian by Ishkhan Jinbashian.
