Synopsis:

Two brothers from a small Iranian mountain village-Saladin, who has always dreamed of leaving, and Ali, who has never given it a thought-are forced to flee for their lives in the aftermath of a political killing. The journey is beset by trouble from the start, but over the treacherous mountains they go, on foot to Istanbul and onward by freighter to the Azores.There, after a painful parting, Saladin alone continues on the final leg, on a cargo plane all the way to Los Angeles. He will have a new life in California, but will never be whole again without his beloved brother and the living heritage that has always defined him.The Walking is the second novel in a trilogy about Khadivi's homeland of Iran, a country poised between the ancient and the modern and tossed by political winds that have buffeted the entire globe. Here, Khadivi tells the story of exodus from homeland, an experience that hundreds of thousands of Iranians underwent, and which millions of others, from different places around the world, have also experienced. In the story of two brothers, Khadivi brilliantly explores the tension alive in all immigrants, between the love and attachment to the place they must leave, and the hopes and dreams that lie in the places they are headed.

Book Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. Two brothers from a small Iranian mountain village-Saladin, who has always dreamed of leaving, and Ali, who has never given it a thought-are forced to flee for their lives in the aftermath of a political killing. The journey is beset by trouble from the start, but over the treacherous mountains they go, on foot to Istanbul. They will continue by freighter to the Azores, and finally by cargo plane all the way to Los Angeles. But only one brother takes this final leg of the journey. Saladin will have a new life in LA, but will never be whole again without his beloved brother and the living heritage that has always defined him. The Walking is the second novel in a trilogy that Khadivi is writing about her homeland of Iran, a country poised between the ancient and the modern and tossed by political winds that have buffeted the entire globe. In this novel, Khadivi tells the story of exodus from homeland, an experience that hundreds of thousands of Iranians underwent, and which millions of others, from different places around the world, have also experienced. In the story of two brothers, Khadivi brilliantly explores the tension alive in all immigrants, between the love and attachment to the place they must leave, and the hopes and dreams that lie in the places they are headed. Alternating between three stands of narrative-the heart-pounding story of flight; the dislocation and struggle of first arrival; and a collective voice that speaks eloquently to the nuanced realities of immigration, both large and small-The Walking is a page-turning read and a window on one of the most salient issues of our time.
