I read somewhere about the recently released 20th edition of Rise the Euphrates. As I had never read anything by Carol Edgarian, and my knowledge of the plight of the Armenians was scant, I nominated it as my book club book for this month (June, 2015). I am only one chapter in but already I love this book. Chapter one lured me in and gave me a king hit, leaving me shocked. I know the book club discussion is going to be robust! I will definitely read Three Stages of Amazement. You have a new fan, Carol.
