"What ensues is a tragic and powerful tale of love and hate, tragedy and rebirth. Zilelian's prose is lyrical at times, but for the most part she crafts a purposely flat realism that perfectly complements her subject matter."-- Christopher Atamian, The Huffington PostRead full review here
"The Legacy of Lost Things is a beautifully written and artfully constructed novel that explores the intimate lives of several generations of an Armenian immigrant family in America. Aida Zilelian has the superior novelist’s combination of equanimity and empathy. In deceptively simple prose, she takes you right to the heart of the matter.
