Deep in an Iranian suburb, made rich by the booming oil industry, Clarice Ayvazian lives a comfortable life surrounded by the gentle bickering of her children and her gossiping friends and relatives. Happy being at the heart of her family, she devotes herself to their every need.

But when an enigmatic Armenian family move in across the street, something begins to gnaw at Clarice’s contentment: a feeling that there may be more to life and to her than this. Dizzy with the sweltering heat and simmering emotions, Clarice begins to feel herself come alive to possibilities previously unimaginable.

Set in Iran prior to the Islamic revolution, Zoya Pirzad’s award-winning novel crafts an intimate portrait of family life its joys and its compromises and how we find a happiness that endures.

"A note-perfect portrait...by a wonderful writer." - Frank Huyler, author of Right of Thirst
"The sparked imagination for both characters and reader is beautiful, but it is truly the things Pirzad leaves unsaid that make this book so good." - Austin Chronicle
A rising star of Iranian literature, Zoya Pirzad transcends the everyday with her luminous writing.”
Elle
"A grand, panoramic family saga... Pirzad writes with wit and precision, deftly evoking the daily routines and rhythms of a city on the cusp of revolutionary changes."
New Internationalist
