Kashani-Sabet gathers together the scattered narratives of women's lives in both Iran and the United States, and weaves them together in a story that says much about the ways women continually reinvent and remake themselves and gives voice to their resilient spirit. A wonderful debut. --Persis Karim, author of Let Me Tell You Where I've Been: New Writing by Women of the Iranian Diaspora
