    Praise for Arto Vaun '[An] ambitious first collection[...] The writing is open and spacious, swerving constantly from intensely personal details (at times it has the immediacy of diary jottings) to a larger, more ambitious range as Vaun conjures his parents' Armenian background and his own experiences of growing up in the United States.'
    Charles Bainbridge, Guardian
    'Vaun is one of those inhabitants of the world who can't seem to settle, yet knows exactly where he's from.'
    Glasgow Herald
