Book Title
The Septembers of Shiraz
Dalia Sofer
Set in Tehran during the aftermath of the 1979 revolution, Dalia Sofer's The Septembers of Shiraz follows the Amin family as they cope with the father's false imprisonment for being a spy, watch their formerly peaceful world collapse, and flee their homeland. " A] richly evocative, powerfully affecting depiction of a prosperous Jewish family in Tehran shortly after the revolution . . . it's impossible to predict whether Sofer's novel will become a classic, but it certainly stands a chance . . . the book's simple plot is immediately engaging. . . . Sofer writes beautifully . . . and she tells her characters' stories with deceptive simplicity . . . The Septembers of Shiraz is miraculously light in its touch, as beautiful and delicate as a book about suffering can be."-Claire Messud, New York Times Book Review--Alison Smith, author of Name All the AnimalsBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Dalia SoferPublisher: Ecco PressPublished: 04/29/2008ISBN: 9780061130410Pages: 340Weight: 0.60lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.20w x 0.90dReview Citations: New York Times Book Review 06/29/2008 pg. 24
