Ninos Hanna, an Assyrian from Boston has recently released his debut novel entitled ”Life of Legacy”. It is a story about Aiden Blair, a half Assyrian, half Irish guy born and raised in US, who is determined to become a legend in Hollywood.
Initially Aiden tries hiding his Assyrian identity in favor of a career in Hollywood. But finally he reaches a turning point in his life where he transforms and becomes true to himself and proud of his family’s Assyrian identity.
In this interview, Ninos tells us why he has chosen such a subject. He wants to inspire Diaspora Assyrian generations to be proud of their Assyrian roots while being integrated citizens in Western countries.
