Beautiful, thoughtful and poignant memoir of a young half-Iranian, half-American book. Bahrampour lived first in America, then several years in Iran, leaving in 1979, then returning sixteen years later for a visit and for reflection on her place--does she belong in Iran or America? Or neither place? She loves the family-centeredness, the rootedness of life in Iran, but is less sure about Islamic rules for women. She loves the freedom of America, but knows she is missing something her relatives that live in Iran still have. Exquisite.
