Overview

My Iranian Matriarchs is a family memoir tracing the lives of three generations of women who, through perseverance and courage, endured hardships as widows with multiple children in a patriarchal society. Jackie Abramian unveils the hardships lived by her great grandmother, grandmother and mother, drawing parallels of the circumstances of their unconventional, inter-faith marriages, with a backdrop of Iran's tumultuous history from the 1900s to the present. Bridging three generations through her only living link, her mother, Abramian hopes to elucidate her own identity as part-Muslim, part-Christian, and find her place in the shifting puzzle of cultural heritage.
