Reviews

"Astonishing and deeply poignant." -The Washington Post "Quixotic, colorful and amusing. . . . An unexpected ode to Iran." -The New York Times Book Review "Informative and touching . . . provides a marvelously nuanced portrait of Iran." -Francine Prose, Elle "Ward describes a more intricate image of a nation caught in a tug of war with itself. . . . He shows the country in all its complexity." -Los Angeles Times "[A] nostalgic, sometimes harrowing pilgrimage." -The New Yorker "A wonderfully tactile, rich book . . . written from the right place (the heart), and with the right kind of search in mind (the search for grace)." -Esquire "Ward's sympathetic and humane portrayals of everyday Iranians can help us transcend today's policy papers and State Department briefings in order to find commonalities." -USA Today "Searching for Hassan should be required reading for U.S. foreign policy makers." -BookPage "Ward hooks the reader with his unique past and observant eye." -Detroit Free Press "A powerful memoir that plumbs the depths of Iranian culture and tradition. . . . A memorable journey." -Library Journal
