Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Moshiri follows her powerful novels of the Islamic revolution in Iran, At the Wall of the Almighty (2000) and The Bathhouse (2001), with a dozen stories over which the revolution malignantly hovers. In "The Wall," 12 blindfolded men are driven to a wall and lined up facing it; they stand a while, some faint, then they are driven back. "A couple of us were wet with pee and vomit," says the narrator. In "Crossing," a woman works out at the club, watched by a man who is betimes raven-black-haired, graying, or completely whitened; she remembers crossing busy streets holding his hand when she was eight, the tricks he played on her in the last years, after the stroke. The flood of fear that was the revolution terrified at the time and chillingly laps at its survivors' consciousness 20 years later and thousands of miles from its immediate devastation. The struggle to understand continues, and the last stories in the book tell fables about it that gleam with wonder and, alas, with blood. Ray Olson
