An Interview with KPCC’s Patt Morrison
In a story about three generations of women moving back and forth between Iran and the United States, Davar Ardalan details her life growing up in two nations at cultural polar opposites. Her memoir, My Name is Iran (Henry Holt and Co.), details three women’s ordeals with love, revolution and the search for understanding two societies. Beginning with her American grandmother’s love affair with an Iranian physician in the early 20th Century and subsequent migration to Iran, she later recounts her Iranian-American parents’ decision to move from San Francisco to rural Iran, and continues through Ardalan’s own experiences living in two very different worlds. She joins Patt today to share her experiences. Click below for a link to the radio interview
