The terms of personal happiness and personal truth go in parallel with public life and sometimes they clash with it. Facts and events that are sometimes considered to be secondary are being more meaningful for the human destiny, and in this contradictory process of existence it is becoming primary to give a meaning to what is lived, the feeling of being in debt to the society, as well as to his consciousnesses.
Ժողովածուն 2006թ. արժանացել է «Հրանտ և Մանուշակ Սիմոնյաններ» գրական հիմնադրամի մրցանակի:
The short story collection is the writer’s first book, and it includes the very first samples of the interactive Armenian prose, as the writer himself characterizes his work. The short stories are structured as games with readers, who should act as co-authors of the short stories. The author is also open to cooperation with other writers (Flying Bicycle; co-author Aram Pachyan, The Last Breakfast; co-author Lilit Karapetyan). Game is an indivisible part of Armen Ohanyan’s works (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Mario Superstar, Hide-and-seek, Matryoshka). That is his unique way to involve readers and a solution to the problem of isolation in the modern Armenian literary process. As a follower of post modernism, he reconsiders the past, unfastening some space in Armenian prose both for old and new heroes (The Return of Kikos, Red Hooding Ride, Radio Yerevan).
