    Readings and events by Nahid Rachlin

    Description of PERSIAN GIRLS, a memoir (Penguin 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. 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.

    Inspired by a true story.

    +++ "An earnest, frequently funny comedy. Persian Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." - VARIETY.

    +++ "A bold, politically relevant film against impossible odds." - Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Laureate, London-based playwright & screenwriter.

    +++ "A superior variation on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with unexpected insights." - Independent Film Critic.

    +++ "It's hard not to be infected by the good humor and sheer joie de vivre of David & Layla." -LA Weekly

    +++ "Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet, add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla, a frothy romantic comedy. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of filmmaker Jay Jonroy Every scene Callie Thorne is in crackles with unhinged hilarity." Washington Post.

    +++ "This indie New York comedy ultimately seduces us with a steady assault of goodwill, bad jokes, goofy charm and buoyant music into buying a love affair between Brooklyn Jew and a Kurdish Muslim. It becomes contagious." - Washington Jewish Week

    +++ "My big, fat, Jewish-Muslim wedding." - The Jerusalem Post

    +++ "David & Layla manages to be both randy and chaste. An offbeat cross-cultural romance with a positive message." - The Los Angeles Times. +++ "Course of Love Runs Smooth in Film about Muslim-Jewish relations." - VOA Press Conference USA.
