My Father's Notebook

by Kader Abdolah
£8.99   paperback  Cannongate Books Ltd (2007)

My Father Ishmael is a man separated from his history. As a young man he was driven out of his home, exiled from all he loved most by the tumultuous revolution that overwhelmed his country. Years later, thousands of miles away, his father dies. His legacy is a notebook, which finds its way into Ishmael's hands. And through it Ishmael will uncover an extraordinary story that illuminates not only his own past, but also that of Iran itself.

"My Father's Notebook reads like a detective story... A moving elegy for a lost father and homeland."
"Simply shows a nation lurching into a hostile modern world and what that does to an age-old thing like the bond between a father and his son."
