My Name Is Revenge
Ashley Kalagian Blunt
On 17 December 1980, at 9:47 am, two men shot the Turkish
consul-general to Sydney and his bodyguard near the consul’s home in Vaucluse.
The assassins aimed, fired, and vanished.
A finalist in the 2018 Carmel Bird Digital Literary
Award, My Name Is Revenge is a novella set in 1980s Sydney and
based on true events.
From the assassination in Australia, one of a series of
international terrorist attacks, the story traces back to the streets of 1920s
Berlin and the Armenian genocide of World War I. Three companion essays provide
A compelling contemporary crime story.
A heartfelt and gripping story of family, hardship and resilience.
Ms Kalagian Blunt’s story is a fine example of why history matters and why we should be pushed to reconsider assumptions about how history was and how it might be understood.
