Three Young brothers leave Los Angeles in the dead of night for Iran, taken by their father from their mother to a country and an ancestral home they barely recognise. They return to the Valley months later, spit back into American life and changed in inexorable ways.
Lyrical and poignant, I Will Greet The Sun Again is an unforgettable portrait of a family being torn apart, and a boy emerging from the ashes. For this extraordinary virtual event, two rising literary stars will discuss the themes of this profound tale, from the ever-changing status as a Muslim in America at the turn of the new millennium to a clandestine love affair that marks the protagonists queer adolescence.
Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to join Khashayar and Caleb as they delve into the power of storytelling and the process of crafting a tale marked by both brutality and love.
“A story for us brown kids who grew up in apartment complexes, making our own breakfast, lunch, and dinners because our immigrant parents were away at work…Khabushani's voice is a revelation; he's written a novel that shows what it means to grow up into a beautiful young man” Javier Zamora
