About the Author
"A searing novel, by Iranian exile Djavahery, of love and betrayal in a time of revolution.... Djavahery's novel is an aching evocation of paradise lost, one that is impossible to regain, even in our narrator's searching dreams. Vivid, shattering, and utterly memorable."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"Djavahery's mesmerizing English-language debut illustrates how betrayal can have far-reaching ramifications.... Driven by the narrator's regretful voice, Djavahery's excellent, gripping tale depicts misplaced, youthful ambition and the conflicts of changing social norms."
"This English-language debut of exiled Iranian novelist Djavahery captures the headiness of youth, with all its promise and peril, and displays how seemingly small actions can become pivotal moments when the world is turned on its head."
