Synopsis
Parastoo is a haunting collection of stories and poems tracing emotional contour lines between post-revolutionary Iran and the U.S., Canada and Europe, between fundamentalist theocracy in a beloved country and isolation in a foreign consumer society. Illuminated by keen understanding of human tragedy and resilience, Parastoo echoes with the sorrow of exile yet offers the tender promise of rejuvenation. "Those were the days when horror and fear wandered everywhere like living creatures, yet I was happy. Perhaps simply because my children were at home, my husband was at work, and no danger threatened us." - from Someone Behind the Door "That's the day the house will be ours, and you will plant vegetables and flowers in the garden. And I'll finish school, get a good job. Ramin will start university, and you'll write poetry again." - from Deliriously Happy
