The author in conversation with Anne-Dore Krohn

In her debut novel, Nilufar Karkhiran Khozani approaches Iran and her family history in a very personal way. The author talks about this with literary scholar Zaal Andronikashvili (languaef: German)

It is Nilufar's first trip to Iran and to a family unknown to her - the family of her father, who left her when she was a young girl and went back to his home country.

There she meets new faces, all with their wounds and longings, and a society full of contrasts. Nilufar learns about a life that could have been hers and a father who avoids her whenever she gets close to him.

Surrounded by the chaos of the ever-flowing capital Tehran and the well-meaning hospitality of her relatives, Nilufar unravels layer by layer the brokenness of a country, her family and her own identity.
