Read full description of the books:



As an Iranian, I was attracted to this book by the beautiful picture of our Mount Damavand on the cover and by the title, a phrase from a famous poem of Rumi. This is a novel about a young American living in Iran when the anti-Shah forces were just beginning to gather strength. I now live in the States but lived in Tehran at the time when the story is set, and I find the picture of the people and culture very accurate. This is a moving story of an inter-cultural love affair, but it is also very funny. The novel gives a lot of insight into one aspect of Iranians that isn’t often recognized in America, their sense of humor. “I like the way Iranians can laugh at themselves,” Marco, the American, tells the girl he has fallen in love with. I picked this book up to see how an American would integrate Persian poetry into a story of political intrigue and cultural differences (and that is done very well), but I found myself captivated by the forbidden love affair between Marco and Mastaneh as well as the contrasting love between Marco’s friend Farhad and Fatimeh, also apparently doomed from the start. I believe any Americans who read this story will come away with a better understanding of what Iran and its people are like.
