“Through the pain of Hamid’s alienation, Sofer (THE SEPTEMBERS OF SHIRAZ), an Iranian-born Jew who grew up in the United States, has created a memorable and difficult character who can be seen as embodying the spiritual distress of Iran since the 1978 revolution. A powerful, complex, and profoundly anguished novel made more relevant by current tensions.”–Library Journal, starred review

“A gorgeously written character study that examines, with sensitivity and pathos, the small steps that lead a man down an unexpected and ultimately isolating path.”–Booklist, starred review

“Iran’s brutal and tragic years of upheaval are evoked through a one-time revolutionary’s rueful reflections… A perceptive, humane inquiry into Iran’s history and soul.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Readers will find Sofer’s meditation on power’s ability to corrupt as relevant and disturbing as the day’s headlines.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
