“The Septembers of Shiraz” is a novel about the experiences of the various members of a Jewish family in Iran at the time of a revolution. Given the setup, there are many things that can make an author lose track; which is why I was pleasantly surprised and happy at the way in which the story was narrated so beautifully.
Gems of wisdom here and there. Now and then a really pertinent and insightful question that makes you want to sit down and ponder upon for a while. At the same time, the story moves along at a good pace, making you feel that you just have to continue reading. Beautiful descriptions.
In short, a really worthwhile read… One book I’d recommend for sure.
