“The Light in the Ruins”, by Chris Bohjalian is a new historical fiction book that is filled with drama, sorrow, and suspense. Speaking to the Armenian Weekly Chris Bohjalian was quoted as saying:
“Creating a compelling story requires a great deal of historical context and research, too. Creating lifelike characters and realistic scenarios for The Light in the Ruins took a lot of time, effort, and sometimes luck.”
The Light in the Ruins is racking up rave reviews. Sheila Moeschen of the New York Journal of Books said:
“The Rosatis’ Etruscan burial site, effectively ravaged and exploited by the Germans for its potentially priceless artifacts, becomes the metaphor for the excruciating violations unfolding across the entire continent. Similarly, Bohjalian raises questions about the nature of injustice and the, often, arbitrary codes we deploy in order to keep a firm grasp on right and wrong, good and evil, or hero and villain. The Light in the Ruins offers an engaging story that unspools in such a way as to keep the reader with her nose to the pages long after the light has actually faded.”
