    PERSIAN GIRLS,published by Penguin (October 2006)
    In a story of ambition, oppression, hope, heartache, and sisterhood,
    Persian Girls traces Rachlin's coming of age in Iran under the late
    Shah-and her domineering father-her tangled family life, and her
    relationship with her older sister, and unexpected soul mate, Pari. Both girls
    refused to accept traditional roles prescribed for them under Muslim
    cultural laws. They devoured forbidden books. They had secret romances. But
    then things quickly changed. Pari was forced by her parents to marry a
    wealthy suitor, a cruel man who kept her a prisoner in her own home.
    After narrowly avoiding an unhappy match herself with a man her parents
    chose for her, Nahid came to America, where she found literary success.
    Back in Iran, however, Pari's dreams fell to pieces.
    Reviews:
    NPR: THE WORLD Slected by Christopher Merrill, the Director of Iowa
    International Writing Program as one of the best four books of 2006. "If
    you want to know what it was like to grow up in Iran this is the book to
    read. Rachlin, the author of five previous works of fiction, including
    the much acclaimed Foreigner, begins her story at the age of nine, when
    she was taken away from the only mother she had ever known—her aunt,
    as it happens—and returned to a family in which the prospects of her
    becoming a writer were, at best, dim. But her portrait of the artist is
    filled with light."

    Matt Beynon Rees, contributing editor, Time: “Through the touching
    story of two sisters, Persian Girls unfolds the entire drama of modern
    Iran. It’s a beautiful memoir-- it paints the exotic scents and
    traditions of Tehran with the delicacy of a great novel. If you want to
    understand Iran, read Nahid Rachlin.”
