From the Publisher"Those interested in extended analysis of Nafisi's work will be interested in this book, especially the last section dedicated exclusively to ###RLT#."
"Draws from her own rich experiences and illustrates wonderfully rich portraits of her family and close friends. . . . Assures readers that every word is wholly heartfelt and sincere."
— Arab American News
"A balanced, objective perspective on Iran, a perspective that provides nuanced depth and humanity. . . . A great read. "
— People's Weekly World
"Introduces ordinary Iranians and a universal spirit we all share."
— Washington University in St.Louis Magazine
"Eye opening. . . . Keshavarz gives a rare glimpse into post-revolutionary Iran, showing that while there are a host of political problems and unresolved social issues, still literature, culture and Iranians' love of life and beauty are alive and well."
—The Jordan Times
"Narrated in a very engaging and evocative style, embellished with poetic force. This personal story is told in a direct narrative form which transcends the boundaries of telling and showing."
— The Muslim World Book Review
"Extremely valuable as a personal testimony of [Keshavarz's] own experiences growing up in Iran and provides a counterbalance to Nafisi's dark portrayal of her life in Iran. . . . Important . . . because of its active participation in the debate about how Western views of Middle Eastern countries are colored by prejudice and stereotyping."
