Tahta was born in Manchester, of parents who had survived
the events of 1915 in Turkey.. As a secondgeneration immigrant, he
was interested in the nature of identity
Using Atom Egoyan’s film, Arara,
as a launching pad, Tahta offers some fascinating interpretations of Armenian
history, religion, language and literature. His digressions into youthful memories,
family history and his own travels through Eastern Anatolia, give this book a
warm and personal feel.
