'Musa Dagh stood beyond the world. No storm would reach it, even if one should break'

It is 1915 and Gabriel has returned to his childhood home, an Armenian village on the slopes of Musa Dagh. But things are becoming increasingly dangerous for his people in Turkey, and, as the government orders round-ups and deportations, the villagers of Musa Dagh decide to fight back. The seminal novel of the Armenian genocide, Franz Werfel's bestselling 1933 epic brought the catastrophe to the world's attention for the first time, and has become a talismanic story of resistance in the face of hatred.

'Forty Days will invade your senses and keep the blood pounding. Once read, it will never be forgotten' The New York Times

Translated by Geoffrey Dunlop and James Reidel
