A memoir to inspire * Aminatta Forna *
I cannot recommend this book highly enough * Nassim Assefi, author of Aria *
Fascinating insight on a topic much discussed but rarely understood from a human perspective. Recommended reading for anyone with an interest in the Middle East * Image Magazine *
Her descriptions are so incredibly lush you feel as much as read them - I could smell the cardamom in the chai, the camellias in the garden. Here is a portrait of a country completely at odds with the media's portrayals: the sensuous, intellectual and social Iran that Mohammadi left behind. It was a particular joy to read this memoir in the wake of the recent presidential election, for in the author's nostalgic depiction, one finds both a world that has passed away and one being born again. * Taiye Selasi, author of Ghana Must Go *
