A conversation with Antonia Arslan



A conversation  with Antonia Arslan

Introduction by Siobhan Nash-MarshallModerated by Enrica Maria FerraraAntonia Arslan is an Italian writer and academic of Armenian origins. Her first novel, La masseria delle allodole, was published in 2004 by Rizzoli, and it appeared in English as Skylark Farm, translated by Geoffrey Brock. Drawing on the history of her own recent ancestors it tells of the attempts of the members of an Armenian family caught up in the Armenian Genocide to escape to Italy. The book was the winner of numerous awards and won the Premio Campiello award in 2004.“Skylark Farm remains in its essentials a factual evocation of the bestiality, endurance and occasional heroism that attended the liquidation of Anatolian Armenia.” Sunday TelegraphSiobhan Nash-Marshall (Manhattanville College) is a Professor of Philosophy and the Mary T.
