Three Apples Fell From the Sky
In a remote village high in the Armenian mountains, a close-knit community bickers, gossips and laughs. Their only connection with the outside world is an ancient telegraph wire and a perilous mountain road that even cows struggle to navigate. As they go about their daily lives – harvesting crops, making baklava, tidying their houses – the villagers are sustained by one thing- their belief in magic. But when 58-year old Anatolia becomes pregnant, it looks like the fortunes of this isolated village are about to change.
With sumptuous imagery and warm humour, Narine Abgaryan’s enchanting fable brilliantly captures the idiosyncrasy of a small community. Three Apples Fell from the Sky is a vibrant tale of resilience, bravery and the rejuvenating power of love, available in English for the first time.
