~Spanning the twentieth century, My Calling
tells the story of a family of Armenian
immigrants fascinated by French elegance.
In 1923, 22-year-old Méliné flees Turkey
after her father was hanged in the
persecution. She heads to France with a
page from Vogue stuffed up her sleeve. She
dreams of fashion. 80 years later, her
granddaughter Sophie, though initially
planning to become a linguist, instead
becomes a journalist and accepts the job of
Fashion Director at ELLE, thus realizing, in a
way, the family destiny. Across some fifty
chapters, the books goes back and forth
between the saga of Méliné, who dreams of
meeting Coco Chanel, and the everyday life
of Sophie at the head of one of the greatest
fashion magazines in the world.
