Aram Tomasian is an Armenian immigrant living in 1920’s Milwaukee who has escaped the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 by the Turks in his homeland in Eastern Turkey. He wants a new start and a new family in America– to replace the family he lost to the genocide. He chooses a mail-order bride and into his life comes an Armenian teenager, Seta, who has also escaped the vicious grip of the Ottoman Turks. He hopes to build a marriage and a family. Peppered with humor, irony, and bittersweet surprise, theirs is a universal story of hope, healing, redemption, and finally, love. By 2019 Beast on the Moon has been translated into 20 languages and has been seen in 25 plus countries.
