My Father's Notebook

by Kader Abdolah

The strength of this novel lies in the intensity of the father and son relationship, which will bring a lump to your throat. A truly beautiful and moving tale of suffering and repression. You must read this novel and spread the word!


His enchantment with the full moon was a throwback to his life in Isfahan. The nights there had been full of stars. The moon had hung above the magical mosques like a heavenly lamp.
If you stood in Naqsh-e-Jahan square on a clear night, you could pluck the moon right out of the sky. It's what the ancient Persian poets did with their poetry.
