Event description:

The reading public has been fascinated of late with the lives of Iranians. From Firoozeh Dumas’s Funny in Farsi and Laughing without an Accent, to Azadeh Moaveni’s Lipstick Jihad and Azar Nafisi’s Reading Lolita in Tehran, personal accounts of Iranian family, culture, and politics have climbed the bestseller lists. But few have as yet attempted a fiction about the Iranian diaspora—a big-hearted story that captures the tumultuous character of one of the most successful migrant communities in the world. This is Bahiyyih Nakhjavani’s new novel.
