A World Between: Poems, Short Stories and Essays by Iranian-Americans, an Anthology written by Persis M. Karim

 

A World Between: Poems, Short Stories and Essays by Iranian-Americans, an Anthology written by Persis M. Karim

Synopsis:

This collection is the first published anthology of writings by Iranian immigrants and first generation Iranian Americans.

Library Journal

While many themes in this collection echo typical immigrant experiences, most of the contributions offer unusual glimpses into a lesser-known and often stereotyped ethnic group. The majority of the more than one million Iranian Americans left their homeland after the 1979 events that brought down the Shah and ushered in a new fundamentalist order. This anthology includes stories, essays, and poems by more than 30 first- and second-generation Iranian Americans, set against the backdrop of the Islamic revolution in Iran and refugee life in America. Charming and deeply personal, the writings often reflect on the pain of alienation and cultural struggle. The diversity of the contributors is noteworthy, ranging from 14-year-old Sharif, whose poem "My Father's Shoes" describes the pain of exile, to Persian poet and New York University professor Mohammad Khorrami. This first-ever collection of writings in English by Iranian American literary talents is highly recommended for most libraries.--Ali Houissa, Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
