From the TALK series, The Exile's Place
Discussion Leader: Ann Birney

Iranian exile Azar Nafisi recognizes that "the ease with which all that you call home, all that gives you an identity, a sense of self and belonging, can be taken away from you." Her memoir covers both her increasing alienation from the theocratic state in Iran and her complex relationships with her mother, whose "coffee hours" with other women offered a refuge from an increasingly controlled public sphere, and her father, who kept his own secret diary.
