Journey from the Land of No: A Girlhood Caught in Revolutionary Iran
Ships within 1 week
In Journey from the Land of No Roya Hakakian recalls her childhood and adolescence in pre-Revolutionary Iran with candor and verve. The result is a beautifully written coming-of-age story about one deeply intelligent and perceptive girl’s attempt to ﬁnd an authentic voice of her own at a time of cultural closing and repression. Remarkably, she manages to re-create a time and place dominated by religious fanaticism, violence, and fear with an open heart and often with great humor.
