Description

Long before the momentous Iranian Revolution of 1979, which placed the country under strict religious rule, Shusha Guppy grew up in a Persia delicately balanced between traditional Islamic society and the transforming forces of westernisation.

In this eloquent memoir, she recreates the lost world of her childhood before the oil boom and the eventual overthrow of the Shah.

Her magical tales about relatives and friends, music and drama, religious holidays and celebrations are interwoven with myth and legend, poetry and anecdote and provide a rare and optimistic portrayal of Iran.

This is an enlightening and moving testimony of a vanished world: a story as vibrant as Iran itself.
