About this product
- DescriptionLong before the momentous Iranian Revolution of 1979, which placed the country under strict religious rule, the author grew up in a Persia delicately balanced between traditional Islamic society and the transforming forces of westernisation. This title recreates the lost world of her childhood before the oil boom and the overthrow of the Shah.
