These aren't childhood stories; this is a very real and vivid image of the lives of the Iranian diaspora community during the pre-revolution and post-revolution era. However, the stories being told as if you are being told by a child adds to the emotions you are bound to experience reading this book, because you know that this book is being written by the author as an adult, but the emotions and experiences in the book, weren't. The author basically tells the reader that Iran is more than what you read in articles and watch on the news; it is people's life. The good times and the laughs, the cries and the suffering time; these are all Iran. There is a very human side to everything that is happening in countries like Iran that we sometimes we forget as we watch them on the news.
Shaparak Khorsandi, thank you for sharing your experience with the world.
Having written that, I must add that when the author gets to her father's return to Tehran and discovers that while he felt he was a child of the revolution, the people there were not what he was expecting, I felt a kindred soul. I had lived in Iran off and on over two decades and I was in Iran in 1978 and early 1979. I was somewhat taken aback when I realized that while I personally was supporting the revolution, no one was interested very much in what I, personally, thought. They had already dismissed me as irrelevant. As a journalist, Hadi Khorsandi was not, of course, irrelevant but I saw too many Iranians who had looked forward for so long to a country without a dictator become quickly disillusioned and totally disappointed when the Islamicists gained the upper hand. The rest is history - none of us can go back.
This is the first truly personal, "insider," Iranian viewpoint I've read and I had a great deal of empathy for the author and her family.
One last note on grammar/usage. I would have thought that perhaps the author would make some mistakes - the persistent use of nominative "I" when the object "me" is required following a preposition but her editors should be severely chastised.
It was worth the wait.
Her story is remarkably touching, not the usual radical comedic send up. A very pleasant surprise. Told through her childhood eyes her family's exile into England to escape Iran after the fall of the Shah is delightfully innocent and full of love for all her family, home country and newly adopted one. Of course she would not be Shappi without a humorous take on life, but it is a gentle, delicate and sincere one.
Enjoy the read!
It is a bittersweet story that Ms. Khorsandi tells - and as a parent who has moved our family a few times, one forgets that the views of our children are certainly different from the adults who control their lives. I heartily recommend this well-written and well-told story for anyone who is interested in a personal look at how major events in our society shape individuals.
