About the Book

Perisan Girls: A Memoir

Here is perhaps the most intimate portrait we will ever have of what it is like for a creative and ambitious girl to grow up in the repressively patriarchal culture of Iran. Acclaimed novelist Nahid Rachlin traces her life from her childhood under the Shah, through the Islamic Revolution of 1979, which she witnessed from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to a bittersweet reunion with a family both shattered and healed by the tragedies that have befallen them.
