    Persian Girls, Nahid Rachlin’s recently published memoir about her earlier life in Iran, has garnered rave reviews. Christopher Merrill, the Director of Iowa International Writing Program, rates it as one of the best four books of 2006.



    In addition to Persian Girls, Nahid Rachlin’s publications include four novels -- Jumping Over Fire (City Lights), Foreigner (W.W. Norton), Married to a Stranger (E.P. Dutton), and The Heart’s Desire (City Lights) -- and a collection of short stories, Veils (City Lights). Her short stories have appeared in about fifty magazines, and several of her stories have been anthologized. Her essays and reviews have been published in Natural History Magazine, The New York Times, and Newsday.



    Nahid Rachlin has taught at Barnard College and Yale University. She is currently teaching at the New School University and will be teaching at the Geneva Writers Conference in February 2008.

    PERSIAN GIRLS, (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.
