Jacqueline Saper was born in Iran to an Iranian father and a British mother. In 1979, she experienced the tumultuous Iranian revolution. While many members of her Jewish community sought asylum abroad, she and her family remained. Her memoir is a riveting story of fate, faith, and multiple cultural identities of a young woman in one of the most fascinating and politically turbulent parts of the world. Saper’s experiences in Iran, when public chants of “Death to America” were commonly heard, is especially important. She left (fled) Iran in a harrowing journey in 1987.
