Iranian-American suburban California girl Azadeh Moaveni has always lived in two worlds: one filled with tradition as an Iranian exile, the other as a California girl who practiced yoga and listened to Madonna. College years intensified her conflicts, and after graduating she moved to Iran as a journalist to confront her search for identity in two very different cultures. This memoir account of her homecoming during the country's reform movement and her experiences with Tehran culture and young people seeking change makes for a riveting set of social and cultural insights not to be missed by any interested in Middle East affairs.
