To See and See Again: A Life in Iran and America

by

To See and See Again: A Life in Iran and America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compelling and intimate exploration of the complexity of a bicultural immigrant experience, To See and See Again traces three generations of an Iranian (and Iranian-American) family undergoing a century of change--from the author's grandfather, a feudal lord with two wives; to her father, a freespirited architect who marries an American pop singer; to Bahrampour herself, who grows up balanced precariously between two cultures and comes of age watching them clash on the nightly news.

Synopsis:

A stunningly well written, subtle, entertaining, and understated account of family life lived in America and in Iran before, during, and after the Iranian Revolution.
