Apr. 23, 2009: UNH Writers Series presents Nahid Rachlin
DATE: Thursday, April 23, 2009
TIME: 5:00 p.m.
LOCATION: MUB Theatre II
Praised by V.S. Naipaul, Anne Tyler, and other writers, Nahid Rachlin has spent her career writing novels about hidden Iran -- the combustive political passions underlying everyday life and the family dramas of ordinary Iranians. With her long-awaited memoir, Persian Girls (2006), she turns her sharp novelist's eye on her own remarkable life. Her other publications include four critically acclaimed novels, including Jumping Over Fire, Foreigner, Married to a Stranger, and The Heart's Desire. She is also the author of a collection of short stores, Veils. Her individual short stories have appeared in about fifty magazines, including The Virginia Quarterly Review, Prairie Schooner, Redbook, Shenandoah, and she has written reviews for New Times and Newsday. Nahid Rachlin is currently an associate fellow at Yale, and she teaches at the New School and the Unterberg Poetry Center in New York.
