Summary note:
In this moving story of one woman's attempt to adapt to the complexity of life in modern Iran, Fariba Vafi reflects on the exigencies of marriage and motherhood. The narrator, a young mother and housewife living in a low income neighborhood in Tehran, dwells upon her husband Amir's desire to immigrate to Canada. His lifestyle underscores her own sense of inertia. When he finally slips away, the young woman is forced to raise the children alone and to care for her ailing mother.
