"The Burden of My Red Lips in Tehran,” by Iranian-American author Shaghayegh Farsijani

Shaghayegh Farsijani is a former reporter and anchor, turned author and poet. She has traveled extensively throughout the world and has finally returned to her hometown of New York City. After publishing her collection of sensual poetry, she decided to share her story as a young woman during some of the most heated years in Iran's modern history.

Shaghayegh states, "When I returned to Iran with my parents in my late teens, I embarked on an exciting and life-altering journey. This story is based on my true life experiences of moving to a culture rich in history but torn by religious controversy. I was firmly grounded in the Western culture of my formative years, which began in Brooklyn, NY. I plunged through transformational challenges in Iran and guarded my Western identity. This novel is my story of how an adolescent girl—equipped only with fearlessness and without true life skills—sets goals and begins a journey with insurmountable odds."
