it was amazing

I could not put this book down. (It cost me some sleep.) The Septembers of Shiraz takes place in Iran after the revolution. The Iranian-American author is a very gifted young writer who beautifully captures the characters of 4 Jewish family members after the father has been thrown in prison. He has done nothing except be wealthy and maginally connected to the Shah. It is a frightening time, as those in prison are tortured and killed with very little provocation. The short chapters switch between all the family members as they deal with their sudden change in status.
