Journal Entry 1 by wingFraukeRowing from Göteborg, Västergötland Sweden on Wednesday, October 07, 2015

9 out of 10

This is the story of Saba Hafezi, growing up in a small village in Northern Iran. And at the same time, it is the story of her sister living the American dream with all its immigrant worries and sucesses. Between "maast" (yoghurt) and "doogh" (yoghurt soda), there are many lies (doroogh) and truths (raast) woven into the delicate stories, interspersed with Persian expressions, customs and traditions and many wonderful characters. While the threats of overzealous mullahs and pasdars can in some cases easily be "covered in yoghurt" (maast-mali), not all of the sometimes tragic events are that easily forgotten. An enchanting book, melancholic and hopeful at the same time!
