Riassunto: From Â“a striking new talentÂ”(Sandra Dallas, author of Tallgrass) comes an unforgettable debut novel of young love and coming of age in an Iran headed toward revolution.
In this poignant, eye-opening and emotionally vivid novel, Mahbod Seraji lays bare the beauty and brutality of the centuries-old Persian culture, while reaffirming the human experiences we all share.
In a middle-class neighborhood of IranÂ’s sprawling capital city, 17-year-old Pasha Shahed spends the summer of 1973 on his rooftop with his best friend Ahmed, joking around one minute and asking burning questions about life the next. He also hides a secret love for his beautiful neighbor Zari, who has been betrothed since birth to another man. But the bliss of Pasha and ZariÂ’s stolen time together is shattered when Pasha unwittingly acts as a beacon for the ShahÂ’s secret police. The violent consequences awaken him to the reality of living under a powerful despot, and lead Zari to make a shocking choice
L'autore: Mahbod Seraji was born in Iran, and came to the United States in the 1970s.
