A New York Times Bestselling Author

As a child in Tehran, Forugh Farrokhzad is told that Persian daughters should be quiet and modest, yet she finds ways to rebel. When her passion for poetry takes flight, tradition seeks to clip its wings. Inspired by her verse, letters, films, and interviews, Darznik uses the lens of fiction to capture the tenacity, spirit, and conflicting desires of a woman who represents the birth of feminism in Iran.


Customer Reviews

“Farrokhzad is known as the Sylvia Plath of Iran . . . Plath’s renown is universal; Darznik’s enthralling and illuminating novel will introduce Farrokhzad to a whole new world of readers.”
