A Novel of Iran’s Revolution [Persian Title: Dar Hazar.The original text & the English translation available on this site.]
At Home gives a panoramic view of the Islamic revolution in Iran covering a span of one year: starting from what became known as “black Friday” up to hostage taking in the American embassy in Tehran. The factual and chronological accuracy of the events is masterfully enveloped in the hustle and hubbub of every day life in that city. One sees the happenings with the sharp critical eyes of the narrator, a woman writer, and practically lives among her circle of friends and acquaintances through out the novel. The pages of this book palpitate with the excitement, urgency and the awesomeness of the revolution. At Home has been highly praised by public and critics alike.
