From the PublisherBeguiling. . . . An American manifesto, if ever there was one.—Wendy Law-Yone, The Washington Post Book World
"Asayesh's superb memoir . . . is funny, human, real, and illuminates a dignified, honest, and endearing family."—James McBride, author of The Color of Water
"Asayesh reminds us of every adopted person's dream: to reclaim the past and take it into the future. . . . A graceful and moving account of how a temporary visa can become a permanent life."—Richard Wallace, San Francisco Chronicle
"This beautifully written narrative provides a rare, humanizing glimpse into the politics, culture, and geography of a place about which most Americans know shamefully little. . . . A wonderful and timely tale."—Rachel Mattson, Library Journal
"What makes this work particularly effective is the manner in which Asayesh weaves her keen reporter's eye for objective detail with her almost poetic ability to describe and analyze her own emotional connection to the story."
