The stories of Akhtar Naraghi’s novel deal with matters of belonging and loss, inclusion and exclusion, in contexts of nation, race,and gender. In remarkably clear, simple, and concrete language, in narrative forms reminiscent of folk tales and autobiography, she presents a vivid picture of the struggle for personal identity against the obstacles of national, politics and cultural prejudice.
